Plenary session—short talk: Why I love the Apostle Paul (Jane Tooher)
Over the years, including up to our present day, there has been endless lectures and sermons given, as well as books, articles and blog posts published, about the Apostle Paul. Women and men have long been fascinated by this man whose writings—on various topics, including those to do with the ministries of women and men—divide people. On the 10-year anniversary of the launch of the Priscilla & Aquila Centre (P&A), Jane Tooher, the founding director of P&A, shares some of the reasons why she loves the Apostle Paul.
Jane has served on the faculty of Moore since 2009, lecturing in Ministry and Church History, and directing Moore’s Priscilla & Aquila Centre. Before joining the faculty she served in local church ministry in London and Sydney. Her published works include, “A Friendship Revealed. The Marsden & Stokes Family Correspondence” in Freedom to Libel: Samuel Marsden v Philo Free: Australia’s First Libel Case (Bolt, 2017), and “The People Who Listen: The Corporate Task of Hearing God’s Word” in Doctrine for Declaration: Explorations in the Theological Foundations for Biblical Preaching (eds. C. Kuhn & P. Grimmond; Bellingham: Lexham, forthcoming).
