Theopolis Junior Fellows Program

For more information on this program and application.

Since 2013, the Theopolis Institute has been training imaginative, courageous Christian leaders to meet the challenges of our time. We have erected scaffolding for the work of rebuilding the house of God.

And this summer, we are making it easier for you to join this band of dedicated leaders, when we inaugurate our revised Junior Fellows Program.

Theopolis will admit up to thirty men and women as 2019-2020 Junior Fellows. Junior Fellows will meet in Birmingham, Alabama, for a two-week session in July, and regather for a week-long session the following January.

Junior Fellows will learn how to read the Bible, master the fundamentals of liturgy, and engage with critical cultural problems and thinkers. Each day will be punctuated by worship and Psalm-singing.

I would very much like to provide transcripts for all of my videos, but I will require more support for this to be affordable. If you would like to help to make this possible, please consider supporting or donating using my Patreon or PayPal accounts. New sponsorship and donations are being earmarked for this specific purpose.

Transcript for Is There Meaning to Be Found in the Ordering of the Books of the Bible

One of my supporters has very kindly transcribed this video, in which I discuss the rationales for different orderings of the books of the Bible. I don’t have time to transcribe my videos myself, so anyone willing to volunteer to transcribe one video every week or fortnight would be greatly appreciated! The transcript is very lightly edited at a few points for the purpose of comprehension.
