Wheaton’s PhD Students and Faculty at ETS/AAR/SBL 2013

I am very pleased to say that Wheaton’s doctoral students and faculty were well represented at this year’s Bible/theology conferences. It’s exciting to see the breadth of research and writing going on here, especially when you know that this is only a small sampling of what everyone is doing.

speaking (550x367), conference, microphone, podium,  public speaking, lecture, lecturing, teaching, preaching

The doctoral students in particular did an outstanding job with 9 students presenting 10 papers over a wide range of biblical and theological topics. And the faculty were similarly well represented with 17 faculty presenting 19 papers.

I have listed the various presenters and papers below. Given that this list includes 29 papers and 4 moderated sessions extending over 8 days and 3 conferences, it’s entirely possible that I’ve missed something. So let me know if anything is missing or incorrect.

You will also notice that I’m not on the list anywhere. That’s mostly because I’m lazy. But it also has something to do with deciding that I had enough going on with the move to Wheaton this year. (Mostly the former.)

If you’re interested in any of these papers/topics and would like more information, feel free to let me know in the comments or by email. I can’t guarantee anything since none of these papers are mine and they may well represent ongoing research that people aren’t quite ready to share with a broader audience. But it’s also possible that they’d be happy to pass something along, and it can’t hurt to ask! So let me know.

    Dr. Cortez,

    Jordan Barrett’s paper looks awesome. Any way you could convince him to send it my way?

    I’d LOVE to read

    Karin Stetina’s “John Calvin on the Inspiration and inerrancy of Scripture.”

    Is that possible?
