Tomorrow I am flying to Milwaukee, Wisconsin to attend and participate in the 64th annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS). Held at what was once called the Frontier Airlines Center (now the Delta Center) , it will last from Wednesday, November 14 until Friday, November 16. I will be delivering three papers at the meeting, all of which were invited: (1) In the Bioethics Section I will be delivering a paper that critiques the argument for “After Birth Abortion” recently defended by two philosophers in the Journal of Medical Ethics; (2) In a special session on the book,Journeys of Faith: Evangelicalism, Eastern Orthodoxy, Catholicism, and Anglicanism (Zondervan, 2012) (of which I am one of the four main contributors), I will offer a reflection on my return to the Catholic Church five years later; and (3) In one of the sessions sponsored by the Evangelical Philosophical Society (a group in which I hold membership), I will provide a Catholic perspective on Jerry Walls’ book, Purgatory: The Logic of Total Transformation (Oxford University Press, 2011). (If you want to look at the entire conference program, go here)
I will also be participating in the Reason for Hope Conference, an apologetics event sponsored by the Evangelical Philosophical Society (EPS) and held at Spring Creek Church in Penwaukee, Wisconsin. In my session I will talk on the topic, “Can We Be Good Without God?”
I look forward to seeing many of my old ETS and EPS friends.
