I just received notice of an inaugural Women’s Theology Conference being conducted in Brisbane in July this year. The featured speaker is Elaine Wainwright, until recently the Richard Maclaurin Goodfellow Professor in Theology at the University of Auckland.
The Call for Papers is open until June 15 for anyone interested.
This year’s Wheaton Theology Conference, was conducted just a couple of weeks ago. The theme this year was The Image of God in an Image Driven Age. The audio and video are not on their website yet, but hopefully they will appear before too long. As usual, the list of speakers includes some newcomers as well as seasoned scholars with distinguished careers.
For several years now, one of my favourite resources has been to download the audio lectures from the Wheaton Theology Conference and listen to them over and over as I walk or cycle. The quality of the lecture series is excellent, with well-regarded scholars bringing high-quality content. My favourite series so far are the series on Bonhoeffer and Life in the Spirit. But there are excellent lectures/essays in all the series.
I also collect the books, which are published about a year later. I have about nine of the series in published format. The books go back further than the audio available, and Vose library has copies of the books that go back probably to the beginning of the series – more than twenty years now.
Whether via the books, the audio or the video, you will encouraged, inspired and challenged by this wonderful resource.
