I was very excited to read that there is a second (revised/updated) edition of the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels coming from IVP in September 2013. These famous “black dictionaries” get tons of use by me on a constant basis. It will be nice to have an up-to-date version of the “DJG”!
What’s new about the second edition? You can read all about it in the interview with the editors contained in this newsletter.
I would like to bring to your attention an international Ecclesia (Church) and Ethics Conference/Webinar with NT Wright, Stanley Hauerwas, Shane Claiborne, Michael Gorman, Brian Rosner and several others: May 18 and 25. Get more info here!
This unique conference costs only $10 and the proceeds go directly to charity.
I am honored to be one of the “main speakers.” My topic will be provisionally entitled: “Did Saint Paul Take Up the Great Commission? Discipleship Transposed into a Pauline Key.”
By the way, they will also have something like “simultaneous paper” (like British NT Conference), so some of you may consider proposing a paper. See “Call for Papers” here.
