At the Institute for Intellectual Formation & Skeptical Inquiry, our primary mission is to renew the “discipleship of scholarship” in the learning community.
Our program is an educational resource for anyone—whether supporter, seeker, or skeptic—who recognizes the value of critical thought and desires to investigate questions at the interface of philosophy, theology, science, and relevant disciplines.
The Institute is also a learning environment that welcomes the skeptically-minded to join in an ongoing discourse on topics that emerge at the intersection of religious and secular domains of knowledge.

In this excerpt, Dr. Pagán explores questions like, "Why Paul?" and "Was Paul Deceptive, Deluded, Developed, or Dependable?"
What is “intellectual formation”? In Rom. 12:2, the apostle Paul writes, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
