Wheaton Theology Conference On-line
I just discovered much to my joy that the sessions from the Wheaton Theology Conference on N.T. Wright is available for viewing on-line. See here to start watching. I just finished watching Kevin Vanhoozer's paper on "Wrighting the Wrongs of the Reformation: The State of the Union with Christ in St. Paul and in Protestant Soteriology". Vanhoozer proposes bridging the gap between tradition Protestant dogmatics and the NPP through several mechanisms such as viewing Jesus' obedience as his covenantal relatedness, by advocating a form of "incorporated righteousness" so that God's declaration is to declare someone as a man in Christ, and seeing adoption as a means of bringing together ecclesiology and soteriology (all thoughts near and dear to my heart in SROG). Vanhoozer was clear, witty, and engaging as ever - classic Vanhoozer. Some of my undergraduate students might want to watch this in particular since they've just finished writing an essay on Vanhoozer's book The Drama of Doctrine where they had to answer, "To what extent does the subject of theology determine the method?".
