Sounds like Houston Baptist is the place to be April 16-18, 2015. NB: John Barclay is always worth hearing!
The Department of Theology at Houston Baptist University is pleased to host a conference on “The Church and Early Christianity” on April 16-18, 2015. You can find out more details at hbu.edu/theologyconference. Our keynote speakers are John Barclay (Durham University), Everett Ferguson (Abilene Christian University), Ben Witherington (Asbury Theological Seminary). In addition, we will have a number of short papers presented by scholars and graduate students regarding the development of early Christian communities within their wider theological and cultural contexts in the first two centuries. Registration for the conference is $40 (see hbu.edu/theologyconference), but admission for the plenary talks is free and open to the public.
