Patterson answers questions on his high school GPA, new Calvinism, and more

FORT WORTH, Texas (SWBTS) — From his high school GPA to thoughts on New Calvinism, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary President Paige Patterson answered more than 80 questions related to theology, ministry, and personal history during a rapid-fire Q&A session, March 27.

Famous for his ask-anything Lion’s Den sessions, which he holds occasionally in chapel, Patterson answered questions via Twitter in addition to a live audience in the seminary’s student center. The “Live Twitter Lion’s Den” was conducted in conjunction with Southwestern’s Spring Preview Conference, which gave prospective students and families a taste of life and studies on campus.

Using the hashtag #AskDrP, the audience and anyone around the world with a Twitter account could send in questions for Patterson. Patterson had fun with a few of his answers but also addressed serious issues related to church life and ministry.
