Karl Barth Conference 2016 – Follow up and Announcement

Standard

I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to keep up with the conference postings. We had a number of great lectures and good discussion both yesterday and this morning. However, evening commitments last night and getting back to the airport today prevented me from getting to the summaries. Unfortunately, I don’t foresee having time to finish these up, as I have heavy commitments in the next two weeks. My apologies for those who were waiting for these.

Announcement: It was exciting to hear the announcement for the Karl Barth conference in 2017. Prof. Bruce McCormack informed us that in commemoration of the 500th anniversary of the Reformation (Luther’s 95 theses were written in 1517), next year’s conference will focus specifically on “Luther, Barth, and Movements of Theological Renewal, 1918-1933.” In attendance will be 12 invited scholars from around the world, including three Jewish scholars. The conference will seek to produce original research giving historical, theological, and cultural context of these pivotal “dialectical” years for Barth in his conversations with both Lutheran and Jewish scholars. This conference will undoubtedly be a “big deal” so save the date: June 18-21, 2017.
