What were the early days at Harvard Divinity School like for Timothy George? How did Heiko Oberman and George Huntston Williams influence George? Why is it that the Reformers were the focus of George? What was at stake for the SBC while George was at Southern Seminary and how did it play out in his teaching? What does the future look like for Protestant and Roman Catholic dialogue? Why does eucharist describe George’s time at Beeson Divinity School?
