Southern California to awaken from its dogmatic slumbers?

The first annual Los Angeles Theology Conference is announced. This will take place  on January 17-18, 2013 on the Biola University campus. 

The Conference, which is a joint initiative by Fuller and Biola,  is entitled Christology, Ancient and Modern: Explorations in Constructive Theology and seeks to make a positive contribution to contemporary dogmatics in intentional engagement with the Christian tradition.

Oliver Crisp, Professor of Systematic Theology at Fuller Theological Seminary, comments

“As a newcomer to Southern California I was struck by the fact that there was not a regular forum in the LA area where theologians from different institutions could meet and discuss Christian  theology. It is our hope that through these meetings systematic theology may be invigorated and new conversations and dialogues across traditions and disciplinary boundaries begun.”

Speakers will include

Oliver D. Crisp, 
George Hunsinger, (Princeton Theological Seminary), 
Peter J. Leithart (New Saint Andrews College), 
Katherine Sonderegger, (Virginia Theological Seminary)
Alan J. Torrance, (University of Saint Andrews).

 Zondervan Academic is to sponsor the Conference proceedings.
