Pardon the equestrian analogy, but we thought you’d want to know. On March 23-24, 2012, Southeastern will be hosting the Southeastern Regional meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society. The topic is Biblical Theology and the plenary speakers are Paul House, Scott Hafemann, and Andreas Köstenberger. In addition the Evangelical Philosophical Society and the Evangelical Missiological Society will hold their meetings concurrently on Southeastern’s campus.
Paul House, professor of divinity at Beeson Divinity School and author of various books including Old Testament Theology (IVP), will present on “Old Testament Theology.” Scott Hafemann, reader in New Testament Studies at University of St. Andrews and author of various books including Biblical Theology: Retrospect and Prospect (IVP), will speak on “New Testament Theology as Biblical Theology?”. Andreas Köstenberger, Senior Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, and author of a multitude of books, including A Theology of John’s Gospel and Letters (Zondervan), will present on “Recent Biblical Theologies and the Future of the Discipline.”
As one might have noticed, this conference will be the literary equivalent of a “hot page-turner.” One finds oneself eager to register and, even though registration does not open until the first of December, one can “save the date.”
For seminary students who want to attend, Southeastern is offering a master’s level elective that coincides with the meeting.
