The graduate Biblical and Theological Studies department at Wheaton is hosting a lecture by Dr. Tony Lane. Dr. Lane teaches at the London School of Theology and you can find his faculty page here. The lecture information is below and can also be found here.
A reliable source (i.e., a friend of mine) has promised that this is going to be a really great lecture. The topic is certainly a hot one, both in Reformed circles and in evangelicalism as well. Various Reformed denominations have been rocked by controversy over justification by works, partly due to the influence of N.T. Wright, though there have been some in-house figures who have attracted attention as well (e.g., Norman Shepherd at Westminster Theological Seminary, for those interested). The Evangelical Theological Society made the theme of is annual conference in 2010 the doctrine of justification with Tom Schriener, Frank Thielman, N.T. Wright giving the plenary addresses. Dr. Lane’s lecture should provide an interesting perspective and hopefully move the conversation forward.
