Prior to the invention of the Gutenberg printing press, the Bible was not the printed book we know today. In his keynote address, Fowler will walk the audience through four eras of human communication--oral, handwritten, printed and electronic--to demonstrate how the Bible is once again changing as we enter what he calls "a transitional moment between two grand eras in media history-- the ages of print and electronic communication."
Fowler has taught in BW’s Religion Department for 34 years, serving as the chair for 21 of those years. His keynote will take place on Monday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. in Kent's Student Center. The event is free and open to the public.
