Dr. Patrick Schreiner, Assistant Professor of New Testament Language and Literature at Western Seminary, recently published a volume in Crossway’s Short Studies in Biblical Theology series.

This Saturday, another group of future ministry leaders will join in a seminary processional to be inspired, cheered on, prayed over, and sent out. After the pictures, graduates will set aside their gowns and get on with life. Some (hopefully most) will tack their diplomas on a wall and flourish in ministry.
Dr. Anne Sandoval (1924-2018) taught Christian Education at Western Seminary for twenty-five years.
