Join scholars and pastors in Princeton May 2-5, 2012 to celebrate Princeton Theological Seminary’s Bicentennial by studying Paul’s Letter to the Romans, 5–8. 

Princeton faculty members have contributed much to the study of Romans. 

J. Christiaan Beker’s Paul the Apostle set the agenda for the resurgence of work on the character of Pauline theology.
Paul Meyer’s essays and commentary on Romans are sought by pastors and scholars.
Charles Hodge’s influential Romans commentary was foundational in later Romans studies.

• Contribute to the study of Romans in our time.
• Study the four chapters of Romans from which most of the lectionary texts for preaching come.
• Hear exegetes and theologians from half a dozen countries.
• Engage in conversation on central themes in Paul’s most influential, compelling, and puzzling letter.
• Worship to begin each day, a reminder that Paul’s letters and our study is all to the glory of God.
