Issue No. 11 15 - 21Mar 2010
Intensive Courses by Prof James Beverley

Prof James BeverleyWe are pleased to offer two courses by Professor James Beverley, of Tyndale Seminary, Toronto. Professor Beverley is a seasoned lecturer with many years of experience, having taught widely in seminaries and in churches in North America and in other parts of the world. He also has a number of publications to his credit. We believe that you will enjoy these two courses:

The Gospel & Religions (ME360, 3 credits). Course description can be downloaded from

Confidence With the Bible (HE301, 1.5 credits). Course description can be downloaded from

If you are interested in attending either of Professor Beverley's courses, we need to hear from you soon! Professor Beverley has a somewhat tight schedule in April-June, and we have to let him know quickly whether there are enough interested students at BGST to make the journey to Singapore worthwhile for him.

If you wish to register for either of these courses, could you therefore let us know by 20th March? We realise that this is somewhat short notice, and that it may be even be contrary to the usual Singaporean practice to decide about registration this far in advance. We can only appeal to you: if you are interested, please register for one or both of these courses by 20th March! We need to know!

And to repeat: we believe you will enjoy these courses!

If you need more details about the course, please contact Dr. Augustine Pagolu, who is
co-ordinating Professor Beverley's visit, at pagolua@bgst.edu.sg.
