On March 5 (6pm), I will be giving the Spring 2019 Public Faculty Lecture at George Fox University. My title is:
People of Faith: Why the First Christians Called Themselves “Believers”
This lecture comes out of new work I am doing on why Paul and other early Christians focused on the language of faith and belief, especially in contradistinction to Roman religion.
Anyone in the Portland metro/Newberg area is welcome to this free lecture. I am told it will not be live-cast, but a recording will be posted to Itunes in late March.
For those of you in far-flung regions, I will be giving a more “academic” version of this presentation at SBL, and I am hoping to expand it into a book on Paul’s religion.
