I finally get to announce the papers that are going to be presented in the parallel sessions at the Los Angeles Theology Conference on January 17 and 18, 2013. We issued a call for papers and got dozens of proposals. We narrowed it all the way down to the nine papers that work best together, and will make for the best conference together with our plenary sessions.
Read ’em and, um, register!
