Just arrived home from the annual meetings of the Evangelical Theological Society and the Society of Biblical Literature. I was in meetings with potential authors the whole time so I did not get to attend any sessions but it sure was great to chat to so many interesting people. All very stimulating and great to meet old friends again.
Plus, it is always a joy to spend time with the Wipf and Stock boys — good conversation, good food, and good drink.
I did come away encouraged that there seems to be a growing breadth and generosity amongst evangelical scholars — less and less fit the old evan-jelly-mould. Creative thinking going on! Good stuff.
