-----------------------------------------------------------Geagte mede Christene,
Die afgelope maande het ek korrespondensie gevoer met Prof Dr Adv Nigel Lee.
Dr Lee het 11 doktorsgrade en 28 ander grade aan akademiese instellings
verkry. Tot Des 1999 was hy verbonde aan 'n Australiese Teologiese Skool.
Hy het gese^ dat hy bereid is om na 1 April 2001 in SA te kom praat.
Ek is besig om kontak te maak met mede Christene om op 'n geskikte tydperk
te besluit wat hy na SA kan kom.
Ligstryders sal Dr Lee se onkostes dra om vanaf Australie na SA te kom en terug.
Indien julle wil hê dat hy by julle gemeente moet kom praat sal ons dit waardeer
indien u self die onkostes sal betaal om hom te vervoer vanaf Pretoria.
Laat my weet wat u dink.
Ingeslote Dr Lee se CV.

Three years later he acquired his Th.D. from the University of Stellenbosch
with a dissertation on "The Covenantal Sabbath" (with Rev. Prof. Dr. F.J.M.
Potgieter promoting), and his M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Cape
Town with a disserta-tion on "Communist Genesiology" under the promotion of
Prof. Dr. A.H. Murray (the grandson of the internationally-beloved Rev. Dr.
Temporarily moving to the United States in 1966, Dr. Lee became Professor of
Philosophy at Shelton College in New Jersey. During that time, he did much
of his research toward his second doctorate. He then also regularly

In 1969, he returned to South Africa to become Minister of the Dutch
Reformed Church in Winterton (Natal). During that time he acquired his
Ph.D. at the University of the O.F.S. with a dissertation on "Communist

In 1973, Lee emigrated to the U.S.A. There he was successively Professor

During those years, Dr. Lee also lectured at many colleges, including: Faith

Dr. Lee enjoys a very full and eventful life. He thanks the Lord for his

lead to the Lord: his parents; his father's murderer; and also the latter's
