The Evangelical Theological Society Meeting

A seminary professor presenting at a convention Posted on November 15, 2016  in  [ Theology & Ministry ]

Aside from teaching, one important contribution university and seminary professors make is their scholarly production. They attend and present at major conferences within their field, and publish books, journal articles, book reviews and other related publications.

Here at Grand Canyon Theological Seminary, we are actively involved in scholarly societies within the fields of biblical and religious studies. Two of the most prestigious conferences we participate at are the annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society and the combined annual meeting of the American Academy of Religion and the Society of Biblical Literature.

This year, seven of our esteemed faculty members will present Nov. 15 – 17 at the Evangelical Theological Society meeting and Nov. 19 – 22 at the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature meeting, both to be held in San Antonio, TX.

Here are the titles, times and places they will be presenting:

About College of Theology

Living Faith is a Christian blog that interacts with a variety of biblical, theological and practical topics written by Grand Canyon University's College of Theology faculty and specially invited guests of the college. Our content provides practical and biblical advice from a Christian worldview for living our faith in the midst of an increasingly secularized world. In addition, our content wrestles with cultural topics and issues that challenge how we live out our faith as believers. For this reason, contributors to our Christian blog strive to write with compassion and apologetic concern to honor Christ and edify the church in every way possible.
