"Theology and Empire" is the theme for this year’s Winter Bible Institute, an annual lecture series featuring Epworth-connected scholars, professors, poets, teachers, artists, theologians and other vocations. Our scholars hail from a wide range of disciplines and will be using their own particular lens to look at the many questions that face us as people of faith in an age of unbridled and trans-national power. Each event opens with presentation and concludes with a time for questions and discussion.
