November 17, 2018
Hilton City Center
Denver, CO

Saturday - 7:00 PM-9:30 PM
Hilton City Center-Mattie Silks (Lower Level 1)

Kevin Wong, Wheaton College, Presiding

While Christological literature is ever-growing, Timothy Pawl's book, In Defense of Conciliar Christology (OUP: 2016), stands out among recent contributions with its expansive analytic argument that the doctrine of the Incarnation as expressed by the Seven Ecumenical Councils is not logically contradictory.

A panel of diverse viewpoints span the fields of theology (both analytic and non-analytic) and philosophy, and represent all three historic streams of Christianity (Catholicism, Eastern Orthodoxy, and Protestantism).

Presenters will include:

  • Fred Sanders, Biola University: Conciliar Christology: The Very Idea!
  • Matthew Levering, University of St. Mary of the Lake:Aquinas, Philosophy, Theology: The Future of Dogmatic Reasoning
  • Joshua Farris, Houston Baptist University: TBD
  • Rico Vitz, Azusa Pacific University: In Defense of Conciliar Christology: An Orthodox Christian Response
  • Responding: Timothy Pawl, University of St. Thomas

This session is part of various EPS sessions at the 2018 AAR/SBL meeting in Denver, Colorado.
