Wheaton Students at ETS

I’m in my hotel (Residence Inn a few blocks from the convention center) on Tuesday night and am excited about the Evangelical Theological Society’s national conference. There are some really interesting sessions featuring Kevin Vanhoozer, Chris Wright, N. T. Wright, Wheaton’s Daniel Block, Vern Poythress, Greg Beale, and others. There are several sessions on inerrancy, science and creation, and Biblical theology proposals as well.

In addition, Wheaton’s own PhD program is well represented and below is a list of papers being presented by current students and recent grads. It is an unofficial list and I may have missed a few of the alumni’s papers.

About Peter Green

I am a doctoral student at Wheaton College. My dissertation is on vineyard imagery in the Old Testament, particularly as it is used to convey the theme of Creation to New Creation. My interests are (in no particular order): biblical ethics, epistemology, apologetics, sacramentology, science and faith, biblical theology, OT theology, biblical political philosophy, and intertextuality. I consider myself to be in the historic Reformed tradition, and attend a PCA church. I graduated from Covenant Theological Seminary--the PCA's denominational seminary--and hope work for Reformed University Fellowship, which is the PCA's campus ministry, following my PhD studies.

    I was very interested to attend your presentation “Biblical Judgments and Theological Concepts: Toward a Defense of Imputed Righteousness,” but unfortunately my own presentation was scheduled for the same time as yours. If you wouldn’t mind, could you please forward me a copy of your presentation so at least I can read over what you presented? Thanks kindly — JK
