Via T.J. Lang of Duke U.-
This conference will engage Douglas Campbell’s book, “The Deliverance of God” (Eerdmans, 2009). It will summarize and critically discuss his proposals concerning the modern interpretation of Paul’s justification language, argumentation, and resulting version of the gospel. It will cover broader church historical and theological issues, key questions of close exegesis, and the politics of interpretation, especially in the modern American context.
Scholars, students, ministers, and interested lay people are all welcome to attend.
Each session will focus on a paper, which will be pre-circulated to attendees, and should be read in advance by all attendees. The presenters will summarize the papers at the beginning of each session for 5-10 minutes, and designated respondents can then engage in discussion with the presenters. The chair will then move discussion into plenary. Faculty attending the conference and respondents from other sessions will have priority in plenary.
Respondents will include Stephen Chapman, Susan Eastman, Stanley Hauerwas, Willie Jennings, Warren Smith, and David Steinmetz.
For any further questions, including information about hotels and travel, please contact T.J. Lang.
