The 4th annual Los Angeles Theology Conference will be held on January 14 and 15, 2016, at Fuller Theological Seminary. Our theme is the doctrine of scripture: “The Voice of God in the Text of Scripture,” to be precise. Our plenary speakers will be William Abraham, Stephen Fowl, John Goldingay, Amy Plantinga Pauw, and Daniel Treier.

And here’s the big announcement of the day: We issued a call for papers and got a great response from a wide range of scholars. From among the many good options, we chose the following nine papers to be presented during parallel sessions at the conference:

Myk Habets, Carey Baptist College
“That was Then, This is Now: Reading Hebrews Retroactively”

Erin Heim, Denver Seminary
