This Website contains audio lectures and written material on matters relating to the Christian Faith, the Bible, and the interface between Science and the Bible.  The site is developed and maintained by the Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute.

The Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute is a group of Christians who see a desperate need for men and women convinced of the complete reliability of the Bible who will:
     (1) get training both in Biblical studies and in some other academic discipline, and
     (2) use this training to help other Christians deal with the many areas where non-Christian teaching is so dominant today.

We believe that such trained people can be effective in removing many stumbling blocks that keep others from the Gospel.

Dice or Deity: How Did we Get Here?

This is a series of 15 lectures that explore the scientific evidence for a divine Creator.

Questions regarding the origin of our planet, of life, its diversity and of mankind have sparked controversy for centuries, especially since the rise of Darwinian Evolution.

Today, many claim that science has proved the Bible to be outmoded, so that we need no longer follow its teachings in  morals or fear a final judgment.

Others, remaining loyal to Biblical Christianity, have become suspicious of science itself.

In this seminar, taught at the college level for college and university students, teachers, scientists, engineers, and interested laypeople, we provide evidence that much of the controversy involves overzealous interpretation of either the scientific or Biblical data, and that a real harmonization of the two is plausible.

Selected Seminary Courses and Class Syllabi
Other than Science and the Bible

The following two courses offered by J. Robert Vannoy in 2007 are complete seminiary-level courses including all lecture notes and audio:

Exodus to Exile A History of the ancient Nation of Israel.

Foundations of Biblical Prophecy An Introduction to the Old Testament Prophetic Phenomenon.

The following are full seminary-level courses by Dr. Allan A. MacRae

        Old Testament History. We deal there with the questions: Where did we get the Old Testament? Where did it come from? What is its nature? Its content? We are interested in our course here not in the history of the OT, but the history that is in the OT. Not what the historians tell us about the OT, but what does the OT tell of history. In connection with this syllabus are several side-excursions:
       Excursus on the Law   (PDF format)
       Excursus on Mesopotamin Archaeology
also available as Kindle eBooks

           Old Testament in the Life of the Believer. This is an expanded commentary on the Wilderness Journey between Egypt and the Promised Land, with application to the Christian Believer's experience in life.

Eleanor Murray Recitals
Eleanor Murray (1913-2003)
Beloved Wife of Evangelist Dr. Jack Murray

Pianist Eleanor Murray was one of America’s foremost practitioners of the full-keyboard evangelistic piano style, as well as composer of gospel songs, teacher, and choir director.  She served as partner in ministry with her husband, Dr. Jack Murray, who as head of Bible Evangelism Incorporated preached evangelistic messages throughout the United States and in other countries for over fifty years.  Dr. Murray referred to Eleanor as “the queen”, and this was certainly an appropriate image for the music she produced.  When a large crowd was ready to sing, she led out with infectious, thundering authority.  She performed worshipful, flexible interpretations of hymns and gospel songs, covered with glittering scales and arpeggios that always ended with an extra little two-note flourish that “lock-stitched” the gesture into place.  Hymns as originally printed are scored for voices only (usually soprano, alto, tenor and bass), and to sound convincing on the piano the performer must choose pianistic techniques from elsewhere to “flesh them out.”  One of Dr. Murray’s favorite stories illustrates how wide Eleanor’s musical experiences have been.  Shortly after she trusted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior in the 1930’s, she came with him to church, where it became known she was an accomplished pianist.  She was invited to favor the group with a selection, and to everyone’s surprise, she played the pop tune “Stardust”.  She soon gave up secular music with life-long vehemence – however, subtle echoes of all kinds of piano music show up in her arrangements, always put to use for enhancing the mood and message of the composition.  Students of piano can marvel at these recordings drawn from her glory days, and learn much from her exquisite taste, endless imagination, and brilliantly flawless sound and technique.  Believers of all ages can bow before the Lord in worship, as the words of these songs are brought to life.

About IBRI:

The Interdisciplinary Biblical Research Institute (IBRI) comprises Christians who are convinced of the complete reliability of the Bible.

We believe that all Christians are responsible for advancing the gospel and in removing stumbling blocks that impede non-Christians from accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.

We are aware of the biblical admonition that “knowledge puffs up, but love builds up” (1 Corinthians 8.1). Nevertheless, knowledge is an essential element of the Christian faith, and learned Christians, acting with love, can have a meaningful, positive impact upon all segments of our society.

As such, our objectives are:

1.    To strengthen the Christian Church in evangelism and informed apologetics;

2.    To help faithful students of the Scriptures develop a coherent hermeneutical method that will enable them to be effective witnesses to the power of the Gospel in the academic disciplines and wider cultural contexts in which they find themselves;

3.    Toward that end, to help prepare Christian scholars who will strengthen the faculties of Christian institutions of higher education and provide a strong Christian presence in secular institutions;

4.    To prepare and distribute materials in support of the above objectives.
