Important Information for Those Registering for the British New Testament Society Meeting


A glitch appears to have developed in the booking site for this year’s conference. The residential booking option has disappeared. Please do not use the non-residential booking option if you plan to attend as a residential delegate.

We are looking into it and hope to have it restored to full working order next week.
We will extend the reduced booking rate once we get it fixed.

Many thanks for your patience.

The Germans Debate the Ideas of the Most Recent Incarnation of Marcion

Abschied vom Alten Testament?!   Eine differenzierte Debatte um Notger Slenczkas Thesen vor einem vollen Auditorium: 140 Menschen, darunter eine Vikarsgruppe, Studierende aus Münster und Wuppertal, Pfarrerinnen und Pfarrer, ökumenische Zuhörer. Es war ein guter Aufschlag mit diskussionswürdigen Fragen und Referenten, die in der Lage waren, aufeinander zu hören und zu streiten, ohne sich zu verletzen. –  Melanchthon-Akademie Köln
