LA Theology Conference on Christology

If any of you guys are near LA then this conference looks like the place to be.

The theme is Christology. Here is what they say in the summary:
Christology was the central doctrine articulated by the early councils, and it remains the subject of vigorous theological investigation today. The doctrine of Christ is a field of broad ecumenical convergence, inviting theologians from all denominational settings to fruitful collaborative exploration. In the contemporary setting, it is especially crucial for theologians to investigate the scriptural witness afresh, to retrieve classical criteria and categories from the tradition, and to consider the generative pressure of soteriology for Christology proper. This first annual Los Angeles Theology Conference seeks to make a positive contribution to contemporary dogmatics in intentional engagement with the Christian tradition. A panel of accomplished plenary speakers will survey the field and articulate the sources, norms, and criteria for constructive theological work.

The main speakers are Oliver Crisp, Alan Torrance, George Hunsinger, Katherine Sonderegger, and Peter Leithart.

Wow! If only it were not so far from Worcester . . .
