  1. Thanks for letting me know about this! I heard he was doing a conference back east but what a line up! This will be a most helpful resource. Have a great week jon.

  2. I guess I shouldn’t mention that I had a chance to go to this conference, but wasn’t able to at the last moment. Maybe I should have tried harder.

    1. Matthew,

      You really should have tried harder, but the consolation to that would be this resource can be accessed free which is superb, basically for me who is overseas and it seems an impossible way to attend conferences like this.

  3. Just got back from the conference… what an amazing experience. So many issues at hand. All were handled with humility and excellence.

    1. Edwin,

      You actually were there to listen to these scholars?!!! I sure wish that I was in your shoes! I’m in the process of downloading the lectures and I listened to what Hays and Vanhoozer had to say (well not in their entirety but when i have the time I’ll listen to them more intently.) But as you mentioned, the issues were “handled with humility and excellence.” Though there were disagreements but the spirit of dialouge which in some Christian circles I found really lacking, this was indeed a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed the humor in some of their lectures!
