September 2015


There are several upcoming events that I want to bring to everyone’s attention.

First, on October 29th at 7:30pm Nick Perrin, from Wheaton College, will deliver this year’s A.O. Collins Lectures. His title is “From Stories to Scriptures: When Did the Gospels Become Authoritative?” Prof. Perrin is an internationally recognized expert in the Gospels. He has written on the Gospel of Thomas and the historical Jesus. The lecture is free and open to the public. (See here for more details.)

Second, we are very excited about this year’s Theology conference: “Ad Fontes, Ad Futura: Erasmus’ Bible and the Impact of Scripture.” The conference marks the 500th anniversary of Erasmus’ Greek text and the Reformation. Our keynote speakers are Craig Evans (Houston Baptist University), Timothy George (Beeson Divinity School, Samford University), Herman Selderhuis (Theological University Apeldoorn) and Daniel Wallace (Dallas Theological Seminary). The plenary talks are free and open to the public.

As with previous conferences, we invite short papers. The call for papers can be found at the Conference webpage: www.hbu.edu/theologyconference. You can also find a schedule and registration information there.

We are seeking to make an appointment in New Testament this year at Moody Bible Institute (Chicago campus). Our primary teaching needs include Greek grammar and syntax, biblical theology, as well as an upper-division English Bible course on Paul’s Epistle to the Romans. The ability to teach Old Testament Survey is a plus. We are especially interested in diversifying our faculty with respect to ethnicity. Interested persons should send a cover letter and CV to Dr. J. Brian Tucker (brian.tucker[at]moody.edu). For more information, please see the job posting on the ETS website.
