Jeremiah; the message and the man
Jeremiah is one of the great Old Testament prophets. This 6 week course will explore deeply both the message of Jeremiah in its context, as well as the man himself. Jeremiah has so much to teach us through his character and perseverance to deliver Gods message to a people who did not want to hear it.
William is originally from England. He studied theology and Old Testament in Durham and Oxford. Prior to joining BBC in 2009 he taught at All Nations Christian College in England. At BBC, William has responsibility as Programme Leader for the UoC undergraduate programme.
