N.T. Wright Conference later this week...
at 10:43 AM
Many probably already know of the 2010 Theology Conference starting later this week at Wheaton, which will discuss the work of N.T. Wright. And given how big this event is going to be compared to some of our other conferences, many of you might even be attending. My general practice for our yearly conferences has been to entertain every good intention of making it to most of the sessions, and then only actually making it down to one or two of them, if that. I can't imagine it will be different this year, especially given that the place will probably be a circus with all of you academic tourists clogging the hallways and slowing down the buffet lines at the cafeteria. At the very least, I'll be making it for the book discounts from Eerdmans and Baker.
Do let me know if you'll be on campus, and I'll look out for you to say hello. We could also maybe pull together some folks for coffee or lunch if there's any interest. I was initially thinking about opening up our apartment for dinner to people, but I don't think we're up to that this week.
For those of you who will not make it to the conference, the keynote lecture will apparently broadcast live on our college radio station WETN. I'm not sure whether you'll be able to hear the other lectures, but you can at least catch Wright himself.
