For the first time, Johnson University Tennessee will host the Stone-Campbell Journal Conference on March 14-15, 2014. This year’s theme is God in Culture: Music, Movies, and Contemporary Life.
The conference will feature three plenary speakers: Jeremy Begbie (Duke University; University of St. Andrews) will perform live music on the piano and lead discussion on “Theology, Music, and Resurrection.” Craig Detweiler (Pepperdine University) will present on the theology of movies. Phil Kenneson (Milligan College) will present on “Theology at Work.”
Ten study groups will meet focusing on various topics, which include: Christian Education, History and Practice of Christian Worship, Mark’s Gospel in Mediterranean Context, and Old Testament Prophetic Tradition and Application.
The Stone-Campbell Journal Conference provides a scholarly platform for biblical interpretation, history, theology, philosophy, apologetics, and cultural criticism for those who value the perspective of the Stone-Campbell Movement and who endeavor to advance its distinctive principles today.
