We are delighted to have Dr Adesola Akala join us from St. John's College, Durham University to be our speaker today.

Dr Akala is a New Testament scholar with a theological focus on Johannine and Pauline literature. Her published monograph on the Gospel of John examines the symbolic presentation of the Son-Father relationship and its implications for Johannine Christology and discipleship. She is currently completing a forthcoming book that explores theological and spiritual trajectories in the prayer texts of the Pauline corpus. On completion, she will continue an interdisciplinary project on the glory of God which she has initiated by convening two conferences at St John’s College, Durham University. Sola’s ministry experience in churches spans decades of international preaching and teaching aimed at facilitating biblical literacy, theological understanding, and spiritual maturity.
