About Dr. Wesley Hill:
Dr. Wesley Hill is an Assistant Professor of New Testament Studies at Trinity School for Ministry. He is a gifted and sought-after speaker with the ability to bring Scriptural understanding that faithfully speaks into our present day world and culture. He is a prolific writer who had authored a number of books on topics such as the apostle Paul and the doctrine of the trinity, Karl Barth as a Biblical interpreter, and rediscovering the Christian practice of friendship. As a celibate gay Christian leader, Wesley understands the painful tension that exists between what we believe Scripture tells us and the life struggles of those with same sex attraction. He is a delightfully warm and intellectually brilliant speaker, and we are excited to welcome him to Memorial Park.
