Schreiner @ Karis Church

Karis Community Church in Columbia, Missouri is having a "Theology Weekend" soon featuring my favorite New Testament prof from Southern Seminary, Tom Schreiner.  You should check it out if you are anywhere near that area.  From Pastor Kevin Larson's blog...

Karis is excited to welcome Tom Schreiner the weekend of February1-3. Schreiner is the James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Intrepretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, as well as preaching pastor of Clifton Baptist Church of Louisville, KY.  An eminent evangelical Pauline scholar, he has written the excellent Pauline theology, Paul, Apostle of God’s Glory in Christ, a highly influential commentary on the book of Romans, and numerous other books and articles.  In addition, Schreiner has a New Testament theology coming out in April.

For Karis Community Church’s first “Theology Weekend,” however, Schreiner’s focus will be not on the apostle Paul, but on the person and work of Jesus. The following events will take place:Thomas Schreiner
