HBU Theology Conference

The Church and Early Christianity
April 16-18, 2015
Houston Baptist University
Registration and check-in will begin at 5 p.m. on Thursday in the Green Room in the Morris Cultural Arts Center, which is the building next to the baseball fields.

The Department of Theology at HBU is pleased to host a conference on The Church and Early Christianity that will explore development of the church in the early centuries of Christianity. Our keynote speakers include John Barclay (Durham University), Everett Ferguson (Abilene Christian University), and Ben Witherington (Asbury Theological Seminary). The plenary talks are free and open to the public.
We will also have a number of short papers discussing the development of early Christian communities within their wider theological and cultural contexts in the first two centuries. This includes theological developments related to ecclesiology as well as the social relationships with Second Temple Jewish practices and institutions (e.g., the Synagogue), the relationships within early Christian communities, and the relationship of early Christian communities with the wider Greco-Roman society.
Registration is $40.  Payments are non-refundable after March 15.

If you are affiliated with HBU (faculty, staff, or student), admission to the conference is free. To register please send an email from your HBU account to theology@hbu.edu, giving your name as you want it on your nametag.
