N. T. Wright, Richard Hays, and others at Wheaton

Last week, Wheaton College hosted a conference entitled: "Jesus, Paul, and the People of God: A Theological Dialogue with N. T. Wright." N. T. Wright spoke, and there were responses from scholars such as Richard Hays, Jeremy Begbie, and Marianne Meye Thompson. All of these presentations have been made available to watch or listen to on line. So treat yourself. By the way, lest anyone think that a pacifist would not be invited to speak at Wheaton, Richard Hays joins Stanley Hauerwas, D. Stephen Long, and Bill Cavanaugh in that category :)

The top twenty countdown of Methodist theologians will resume shortly, I think :)

Wheaton was actually founded by Jonathan Blanchard, a holiness minister who was a radical pacifist, abolitionist, suffragist, advocate against child labor, supporter of unions and struggles for economic justice. So, Wheaton may be trying to reclaim its lost heritage as a progressive evangelical school.
