Veith Lecture PHC

Dr. Ed Veith, Literature Professor and Provost Emeritus at PHC, will be delivering a lecture titled, "Finding Your Calling: Applying the Doctrine of Vocation" on campus March 13th. We invite you to join us in the Barbara Hodel Center Conference Room from 12–1pm.


Veith is a prolific author and scholar, one of his primary emphases being the doctrine of vocation. He has written dozens of books, several of which consider to one degree or another, the doctrine of vocation. "For Luther, vocation—the Latinate word for “calling”—means far more than a job or profession," he wrote for the Ligonier Ministries, "Vocation is Luther’s doctrine of the Christian life. More than that, vocation is the way God works through human beings to govern His creation and to bestow His gifts." You can read the rest of the article here.

No stranger to the education community, Veith has been on the front lines of the liberal arts higher education world for over two decades. During his time as Literature Professor and Provost at Patrick Henry College, he encouraged the College to fine tune its classical core and philosophy of education, emphasizing an unwavering rootedness in liberal arts.

Today he is a trustee of the College and the director of the Cranach Institute of Concordia Theological Seminary.

Please join us or his lecture on campus next month.
