2009 Barth Blog Conference Taking Shape

I thought it was time for an update on how the 2009 (Third Annual) Karl Barth Blog Conference is taking shape. For those of you who want to be involved but have not yet contacted me – no worries! There is still plenty of time.

Here is the tentative schedule as it stands now:

  • Day 1: Introduction (yours truly)

  • Day 2: Calvin and Barth on the Exegesis of Romans 1.18-20 (yours truly)

  • Day 3: Exegeting Romans 1: A Critical Appraisal (title tentative: Shane Wilkins)

  • Day 4: Barth’s Exegesis of Romans 1 in his 2nd Edition of Romans (title tentative: David Congdon)

  • Day 5: Resurrection in Barth’s Rejection of Natural Theology: Romans 1.4 in Barth’s 2nd Edition of Romans (title tentative: Nathan Hitchcock, University of Edinburgh; Response by John Drury)

  • Day 6: Barth’s Exegesis in the Shorter Commentary on Romans (title tentative: Shannon Smyth, Princeton Theological Seminary)

As you can see, there are still 5 slots for respondents available, so let me know (commenting on this post or e-mailing me is fine) if you would like to participate in that capacity. Also, I am not in principle opposed to adding more plenary posts if people send me good proposals, so feel free to do so (e-mail for this).

The 2009 Barth Blog Conference will take place in late July or early August.
