    $50 seems like a great value. Wish it were on a weekend.

  • I heard of this conference a week or so ago, but I didn’t actually look at the speakers/schedule until just now. Wish I had heard of it sooner! Looks like it will be a fantastic event. This almost competes with Wheaton’s April theology conference! (…almost. I mean, it’s hard to beat N.T. Wright.)

    Wow, that sounds like a great conference. I met Elesha Coffman at a mutual friend’s wedding reception several years ago. At that time I think she was doing graduate work at Duke. What is she doing now?

  • I won’t be able to attend, but I hope something gets published so I can read up on what was discussed.

    What happened at Mercersberg? I googled it, but did not come up with much.

    Probably referring to this: Mercersberg Theology
