Call for Papers: Edinburgh Dogmatics Conference (2013)
The bi-annual Edinburgh Dogmatics Conference is a terrific gathering of pastors and academics to reflect together on a given theological topic. I attended the conference on the doctrine of sanctification in 2011, and there is just something about that combination that makes for good papers and good discussion. The gathering is put on by Rutherford House and hosted at New College, University of Edinburgh.
This year’s Dogmatics Conference focuses on the doctrine of Scripture. If you are in the U.K. or can get yourself to one of its premiere cities in early September, do consider putting in a paper proposal. Here is the call for papers:
