Philip B. Payne’s class on Women, the Bible and the Church was one of the best classes I have ever taken in seminary.

Prof. Payne is an extremely detail-oriented person. This is the exact quality that makes the best textual critics. He is an avid lover of Jesus, which makes him a great seminary professor. (more…)

I have been overwhelmed and greatly encouraged with positive student feedback from my course at Fuller Seminary Nothwest on “Women, the Bible, and the Church.” Following is just one message:

I want you to know what an absolute privilege it has been to sit under your tutelage this quarter. I am so amazed at how the Lord has woven your life together with all the experiences He has brought your way. I do believe you are doing what the Lord has called you to do and on that great day (if you are not hearing it now in your spirit) when you see Him face to face, I know you will hear “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Dr. Payne, you are a gift to the Church, the body of Christ. Thank you  for sharing all your wisdom and years of research with us. It was truly a privilege for me to sit under such quality and inspired teaching.  (more…)
