What Are Your Thoughts?leave a comment
  • AHH

    When Moses penned the words of God?
    Maybe the person writing the press release is not familiar with the OT scholarship of Walton and Enns …

  • RJS


    So those who attend will learn something.

    The line “Some have even written and edited commentaries” strikes a strange note as well. I have commentaries by Scot, Pete, and John on my shelf. I don’t have one by Craig Evans, but a quick Amazon search shows that he wrote one on Luke and has one coming out this year on Matthew.

    We shouldn’t pick on copy writers too much though. It looks like a great lineup. Those who attend should find it interesting.

  • What’s the intended audience for this conference? I tried to discern it from the conference’s website, but I wasn’t able to.

  • I’m signed up. Looking forward to the event!

  • DAK

    21 speakers listed under the “Speakers” tab at the Pastorum website. All male. Curious. Is this a theological bent of the organizers? Simply availability? Desire to have a wider market and not alienate some who would object to women teaching in this context? Maybe just coincidence? Just wondering. Pretty impressive of speakers, however.

  • DAK

    oops: “list” of speakers however.

  • Alice

    As I am not an academic, this is a sincere question: Are there really no leading teacher/writers who aren’t middle-aged white guys?

  • RJS

    Alice, Yes, But not on the circuit that will bring the target audience to an event like this.

  • DRT

    I don’t know, a couple of those guys look old 😉

  • Scot McKnight

    I know for a fact that a number of women were asked… so I don’t know why they chose not to speak.

  • Scot McKnight

    DRT, can we agree that I look younger than Pete and John and Craig?

  • RJS

    Younger than Pete?

  • EricW

    Registration Fee: $149 = Wonderful

    R/T Airfare + 3 nights hotel (only one of the listed hotels has rooms available for Mon/Tue/Wed night June 4,5,6) + taxis or shuttles: ~$1,100 = Not so wonderful 🙁

  • DRT

    Not Pete, repeat, Not Pete

  • Ann Metcalf

    Eric W,

    I work for Logos and am working on getting group rates for hotels. We would really love for you to attend.

    Please contact me if you have any other questions.

    Thank you,
