Dr. James D.G. Dunn, an international New Testament scholar, will address the topic - "What Should Christians Do When They Disagree?" - for the Willson-Addis Endowed lecture from 3:30 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, in the Piper Great Hall of Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary.

Dunn, the Lightfoot Professor of Divinity from the University of Durham in England, has authored numerous books with commentaries about Romans, Galatians, Colossians and Philemon, according to the Bible Reading Fellowship web site.

A gift from Mr. and Mrs. James McCorry Willson of Floydada, Texas, the Willson-Addis Endowed lecture "examines practical Christianity and draws from any branch of the Judeo-Christian tradition," according to the Truett web site.

The Willsons were active Methodist laypersons, involved in many areas of denominational, educational and social service. The lectures were named in honor of the couple's daughter, Ora Eugenia Willson Addis. Since 1997, Truett Seminary, with its curricular emphases on practical Christianity, has sponsored the annual lecture.
