I have the privilege of serving on the board of the Institute for Biblical Research, and each year we provide an academic program on the Friday night of the beginning of SBL. This year we are honored to have Dr. Craig Bartholomew (Redeemer Univ College) as our keynote speaker on the subject “Old Testament Origins and the Question of God.” Responses will come from Dr. Sandra Richter (Wheaton) and Prof. N.T. Wright (St Andrews). Everyone is welcome whether you are a member of IBR or not.
