A Chance for Reflection and Discovery, Through Paul's Letter to the Romans  

Painting of Saint Paul writing letters"There is a kind of preaching which falls to each of us as a daily responsibility. It has to do with bringing the Gospel to the people we meet, whether they be our neighbors or complete strangers." - Evangelii Gaudium 127

At 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, November 8, Father Thomas D. Stegman, S.J., will be offering a free public lecture titled "Paul's Letter to the Romans: Theological, Spiritual, and Pastoral Implications." Inspired by Paulist Press's The Paulist Biblical Commentary, edited by Fr. Stegman and five other scholars, this lecture will provide a flavor for the uniqueness of the volume, as well as offer reflections primarily focused on Paul's Letter to the Romans. Taking place at the Chapel of Christ the Good Shepherd, Immaculate Conception Seminary, the event promises to be an evening of discovery and enhanced understanding of profound religious teachings.

A light reception will follow the lecture, and copies of The Paulist Biblical Commentary will be on hand for inspection and purchase. All copies bought may be autographed by Fr. Stegman.

Tobin, C.Ss.R., is comprised of explanations of the 73 Catholic books of the Bible, alongside 12 general articles designed to meet the needs of a variety of Bible readers. Over 70 international and expertise scholars contributed to the volume. Its commentaries and articles are not limited to historical-literary issues but draw upon relevant theological and pastoral ideas found in each biblical text. Attendees can be among the first to hear insights from this volume, which was just recently published in August of 2018. All are welcome to join in the discussion.
