About the Guest

Roy M. Paul was born in Perth, Ontario. He completed a B.A. in Chemistry and Psychology from Queen’s University, and an Honours B.Sc. in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph. After a successful 25-year career as a drug product development scientist for Johnson & Johnson, he took an early retirement. Feeling unsettled and still eager to learn, Paul attended Heritage Theological Seminary in Cambridge, completing a Master of Theological Studies, magna cum laude. He subsequently went on to do a Th.D. in Church History, and currently serves as the Executive Research Assistant at the Canadian office of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies.
