Morna Hooker to give Barrett lecture at Durham

Morna Hooker to give Barrett lecture at Durham January 19, 2010

The University of Durham has invited Morna Hooker (Cambridge) to give the second-annual C.K. Barrett lecture on February 16.  The title of her paper will be: “Scriptural Holiness: Paul’s Understanding of Sanctification.”  Last year’s lecture, the inaugural presentation, was given by Richard B. Hays and it was a very happy occasion (as Barrett was present) and the paper was well-received.

Morna is a nice choice as she (informally?) worked a bit with Barrett on her doctoral research (if I recall correctly) and she is a fellow Methodist (as is, of course, Hays).  And her topic is quite interesting – a subject close to the heart of all Methodists and certainly will be of interest to Barrett if he is well enough to be present.  I am sad that I cannot be in attendance for this.  Perhaps I can persuade Morna to send me a copy!  In any case, this lecture is open to the public, so if you are anywhere in England, consider stopping by.  And tell me how it goes!
