Easter With Paul the Apostle: Architect of Christianity
Online Series Begins April 28
A 7-Week Online Learning Series
Offered by Center for Spiritual Wisdom
and St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
FACILITATORS: Rob Field, Director of Center for Spiritual Wisdom
and Fred Brown of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church
Join us for an online study of N.T. Wright’s Paul: A Biography. For 7 weeks beginning April 28 on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m., we will examine Paul’s life and work. Our online platform will be Zoom video conferencing.
Who was the man who many consider the architect of early Christianity? Who was “Saul of Tarsus,” the person Christians call “St. Paul”? We will explore these and other significant questions over the course of our time together.
Our guide will be one of the world’s experts on the New Testament, Bishop N.T. Wright. The book is available in print, ebook or audio editions. (You can find a summary of Paul: A Biography and reader comments at Goodreads.) To allow maximum involvement by all, the group will be limited to 15 members in addition to the facilitators. Each weekly session will end at 8:30 p.m.
Facilitators Rob Field and Fred Brown are experienced teachers and group leaders. Field, an ordained minister, has master’s and doctoral degrees in theology and spirituality. He founded Center for Spiritual Wisdom in 2016. Brown has a master’s degree in theology from Duke University. They both have taught in many different settings.
“Easter With Paul the Apostle” is recommended for those who identify as Christian, and the book is written from a Christian perspective. There is no charge for the series, but participants will be asked to consider a donation to Center for Spiritual Wisdom or St. Philip’s Church, and commit to participate in at least 5 of the 7 sessions.
We recommend supporting a local book store in your area. Here in Brevard, we are proud to support Highland Books on W. Main Street. They are continuing to sell books during the pandemic through curbside pick-up on weekday afternoons.
