      Final thoughts.

      The accomodation and facilities were great. Apart from a coach trip to New
      College for a look at the library and a celebratory meal - everything was on
      the one site.

      BNTC moves round from university to university - so you get to see who has
      the best student accomodation and which students have to put up with the
      direst food. My room at Edinburgh was good - plenty of storage, three book
      shelves, a little kettle for tea and coffee (do the students really get to
      have them during term time?), a phone and there looked to be plenty of
      outlets for electrical sockets and network connections. (Here's an example -
      http://www.iseg2003.com/pan_room.html) Not least were the great views - a
      large outcrop of rock apparently so close that initially I thought the
      campus was actually set in a disused quarry.

      The book stalls were good this year - Eerdmans/Alban Books launched the new
      edition of Richard Burridge's book, 'What are the Gospels' and WJK promoted
      Adam's and Horrell's classic and new collection of essays on Corinth
      (Christianity at Corinth: The Quest for the Pauline Church). However
      surprisingly WJK had no copies to sell. Overall WJK brought a mysteriously
      small range of their NT titles to the conference.

      Best wishes,
