Wheaton Theology Conference – Christian Political Witness

Wheaton’s annual theology conference is coming up this week. The schedule can be found here. Registration opens on WTC 2013Thursday morning, and the first lecture begins at 1:30 PM. There are some great speakers and some very interesting paper titles, so I strongly recommend you come and check it out. Online registration is closed, but the keynote lectures are open to the public, free of charge. We will try to have a summary of as many lectures as possible, here at For Christ and His Kingdom, but look for the recordings to be released sometime in the near future as well.

In the mean time, here are some of the more interesting looking lectures:

  • Scot McKnight, “Jesus and Kingdom Politics”
  • George Kalantzis, “A Witness to the Nations: Early Christianity and Narratives of Power”
  • Peter Leithart, “Violence”
  • William Cavanaugh, “Citizen and Consumer: A Theological View of the Relationship of the State and the Market”
  • Mark Noll, “The Peril and Potential of Scripture in Christian Political Witness”

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.

  1. Also, Thursday night is retired Anglican Archbishop David Gitari from Kenya, who has first-hand, practical experience as a church leader criticizing political corruption!
