On April 10-12, Wheaton College will host its seventeenth annual theology conference. The Wheaton Theology Conference is always a great event to attend: well run, small enough to be a friendly meet-and-greet with fellow theology lovers, big enough to feel like something important is happening. InterVarsity Press co-sponsors it with Wheaton’s Graduate Department of Biblical and Theological Studies.
The 2008 conference is on the doctrine of the Trinity, especially on its relevance for Christian ministry. The keynote speaker is Miroslav Volf, and the other plenary presentations will be by Edith Humphrey, Kevin Vanhoozer, Leanne Van Dyk, John Witvliet, Gordon Smith, Mark Husbands, John Franke, and Philip Butin.
There are also a number of papers being presented in parallel sessions, including my own paper entitled “The Life of the Trinity is Hidden in the Gospel: How Evangelical Practices are Tacitly Trinitarian.” (I’ll be posting some thoughts from that paper here at the Scriptorium between now and the conference.)
The schedule is here. If you’re anywhere near, sign up for this fine conference on a topic that’s far more than timely.
