    Ben,

    Thanks for sharing this good news.

    Will there be live coverage of the event?

    I have no idea about the coverage. Check the Pepperdine U. website and look for Christian Scholar’s Conference.

    If it’s – http://www.pepperdine.edu/christian-scholars-conference/ being handled the same way as last year’s conference, then I guess Lumination Online – http://www.luminationnetwork.com/ will be.

    Peace,
    Eric.

    You will love Pepperdine and Malibu. Make sure to grab lunch at Coogies just down the highway. You never know what celebrity you will see in there. Of course all the patrons will be whispering, “Isn’t that Ben Witherington sitting in the corner booth?”
