I do not consider myself a professor or a scholar!  This evening I am scheduled to present my DMin thesis on Dietrich Bonhoeffer!

2009 WFPS Conference
October 16 – 17

Dr. Ben Witherington IIIThe Fourth Annual Western Fellowship of Professors and Scholars will be held in Manhattan, Kansas, on October 16-17, 2009, Friday afternoon through Saturday noon. In cooperation of the history department of KSU, we will be bringing internationally known author and speaker Dr. Ben Witherington III, of Asbury Seminary, to serve as our keynote speaker.

Last years conference ended with a great deal of enthusiasm. This year we are hoping to build on that. With an increase in enrollment, we hope to be large enough to have parallel sessions this year. If that is the case, we will have space for 8-12 papers, in addition to the plenary session with Dr. Witherington.

The purpose of the conference is to encourage fellowship, discussion, and research among scholars from various academic backgrounds. This years theme is “Eschatology and Worship.”

As usual, papers will be accepted on a wide range of topics that have a bearing on the practice and understanding of the Christian faith, whether they are closely related to the conference theme or not. Works-in-progress and interdisciplinary projects are welcome. Papers dealing with technical matters should be presented in a way that is accessible to an educated and interested audience who may not have specialized training in technical fields.
