2010 Barth Blog Conference Line-up: Sneak-Peak!

The line-up for the 2010 Karl Barth Blog conference is locked-in, and I thought that those who eagerly await this theo-blogging event might enjoy a bit of a teaser. So, without further ado, here are some of the topics that the 2010 conference will cover, as well as their plenary authors.

Andrew Esqueda will write on Barth in conversation with Herman Bavinck.

Halden Doerge will write on Barth in conversation with Stanley Hauerwas.

Derek Maris will write on Barth in conversation with Paul Tillich.

Jon Coutts will write on Barth in conversation with the Coen Brothers.

That’s only 4 of the 17 total plenary posts that this year’s conference will feature, and each will have a respondent. As you can see, it will be an eclectic blend, where Barth’s insights will be extended into realms seldom explored by Barthians, and where insights foreign to Barth will be explored as amenable to his overall project.

So, tell your friends, join our Facebook group, and watch for further updates. The 2010 Karl Barth Blog conference will be coming to a monitor near you in the Fall!

You've accidentally got Jon's name linking to my blog -- I'll be responding to his piece, but I think you got those mixed up. Hope that helps!

Travis,

You have my name linked to a blog called "home brewed Christianity," instead of my site (www.brainofdtrain.wordpress.com).

Not a huge deal, just wanted to let you know.

I hear that Coutts guy is very good! He gave a paper on G.K. Chesterton at the Society for the Study of Theology this week that brought down the house.

Thanks for organizing what promises to be a BIG and very interesting online event! Can't wait.
