The writings and theology of the Apostle Paul stand at the core of the New Testament and form the foundations for so much of our understanding of the Christian life. Come to the Blue Ridge Mountains this winter and join Dr. Guy Waters as he identifies key moments in Paul’s life and considers the essence of Paul’s God-centered theology. We will study a survey of Paul's New Testament letters and also consider recent approaches to Paul's theology, responding to these developments especially in light of early church and Reformation-era legacies.
