TEDS Faculty and Student Presentations at ETS 2013
newsroomadminNovember 13, 2013
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School faculty and students have an active presence at the 65th annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society in Baltimore, MD, on November 19-21, 2013.
Dr. D.A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, gives one of three plenary addresses at this year’s meeting, the theme of which is “Evangelicalism, Inerrancy, and ETS.” Dr. Carson’s talk is titled “An Evaluation of Some Recent Discussions on the Doctrine of Scripture.” Other highlights include a panel discussion about the forthcoming Five Views on Biblical Inerrancy (HarperCollins, Dec. 2013), to which Dr. Kevin Vanhoozer contributed a chapter, as well as papers by Drs. Dana Harris, Scott Manetsch, K. Lawson Younger, James Hoffmeier, Stephen Greggo, H. Wayne Johnson, Richard Averbeck, Doug Sweeney, Eric Tully, John Woodbridge, and Grant Osborne. Several PhD students are also presenting; download a full PDF of student and faculty ETS presentations, including times and locations.
It is fitting that Dr. Carson gives one of the plenary addresses at a meeting focused on inerrancy; as one of TEDS’ longtime faculty members, he has written extensively, often with Church History colleague John Woodbridge, about inerrancy and the authority of Scripture. TEDS has always been committed to biblical inerrancy while also acknowledging that there are different ways that united evangelicals might talk about the doctrine (as is evident from comparing and contrasting Dr. Vanhoozer’s and Dr. Carson’s work on inerrancy).
TEDS is also well-represented at the annual meeting of the Society of Biblical Literature, which also takes place in Baltimore just after ETS and includes the American Academy of Religion and Institute for Biblical Research.
