Perhaps you know the name Kevin Vanhoozer. If not, you should. If I was going to be marooned on an island and could grab only a handful of books before my departure, I would make sure I got at least something off the Vanhoozer shelf. But then again how often does one get to plan for a marooning? Anyway, the point is this: Vanhoozer is as solid as they come. He models for his students the three CSs: 1) canon sense, 2) catholic sensibility, and 3) contextual sensitivity. If you’re looking for a short, helpful introduction to Vanhoozer, I encourage you to check out the most recent issue of Christianity Today.
I’m very excited to announce that Vanhoozer will be a plenary speaker at The Center for Pastor Theologians’ First Annual Theology Conference. CPT has just released the first of six video interviews with Vanhoozer. I’ve included the first one below. If you are a pastor, seminary student, professor who cares about the church, para-church minister, or lay church leader, this would be an outstanding conference for you to attend! Details of the conference can be found here.
