Conference Audio

If you are interested in Pauline theology, you'll probably know that one of the professors here at Duke, Douglas Campbell, has recently written a large tome on his own particular reading of Paul and the topic of "justification" (though he likes to use the term "deliverance" more than "justification"). From what I can tell, it's made quite a splash onto Pauline scholarship, and at the end of last year, Prof. Campbell attended a conference in London (at King's College), one that was entirely devoted to engaging The Deliverance of God. I'm glad to see that the conference audio files are now available online! Check out the lineup:
I'll be done with school in about two weeks, so looks like I'll have to dig into these audio files then. Go check it out here.

Where to?

For my faithful readers, I would like to give everyone the wonderful news regarding our next home after I finish up my time at Duke Divinity School:

Can you guess the skyline?

Atlanta, Georgia! Though, it will be more like the next picture:

If I'm not mistaken, that same skyline is in the background, and what you see in the foreground is the beautiful (well, at least #6 according to this article) campus of Emory University. I'm very excited to have been accepted into their PhD program in New Testament in the Graduate Division of Religion. All the faculty and students I have met there have been wonderful, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to study at one of the best schools in the nation. And on top of that, no more paying for school! It's been a long road and of course, none of this would have been possible had it not been the support and love of my wonderful wife (thank you!). I hope our new home (at least for the next few years) will yield greater and better things for the both of us as we make the transition from Durham, NC to North Decatur, GA. Cheers!
