Scotland Bound: Thompson Awarded Bobby Jones Fellowship
“This interdisciplinary program explores issues of biblical interpretation in dialogue with Christian history, hermeneutics, and systematic theology,” Thompson explains. “I hope to explore more fully the connections between these often disparate branches of theology, focusing specifically on the issues regarding Paul’s theology and his interpretation of the Old Testament.”
Thompson also hopes to connect to a worshipping community and continue to grow in the faith through daily practices of prayer and meditative reading, drawing inspiration from Scotland’s rich Christian heritage of monasticism and pilgrimage. “My plan is to grow not only academically, but spiritually, as I continue to explore my ministerial vocation,” he says.
