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

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.

The following is a transcript of the Twitter session:
