      Dear colleagues,

      Here is another update on the St, Andrews conference a year from now; this
      one has an e-mail address for you to use if you'd like to be in touch with
      the administrators. I am sure that Richard Bauckham would be pleased for
      us to distribute the information to others who might be interested, as
      well.

      Cordially,

      Paul Anderson

      The St Andrews Conference
      on
      The Gospel of John and Christian Theology

      with

      Martin Hengel, Jürgen Moltmann, Rowan Williams,
      Richard Bauckham, Miroslav Volf, . . . J S Bach

      30 June 3 July 2003
      St Andrews, Scotland


      The School of Divinity (St Mary's College) in the University of St
      Andrews,
      Scotland, will be hosting this conference, with Professor Richard Bauckham
      and Professor Alan Torrance as conference convenors.

      This will be a major opportunity for biblical scholars and Christian
      theologians to come together in dialogue around a biblical text which has
      had a profound influence on Christian theology, especially in the classic
      formative periods of the theological tradition, but which has often been
      found theologically problematic in the modern period.

      Keynote speakers will be:
      Professor Martin Hengel (Tübingen)
      Professor Jürgen Moltmann (Tübingen)
      Dr Rowan Williams (Archbishop of Wales)
      Four sessions will focus on dialogues between two speakers on a major
      issue:
      Christology:
      Francis Watson (University of Aberdeen)
      Paul Anderson (George Fox University)

      Anti-Judaism:
      Judith Lieu (King’s College London)
      Stephen Motyer (London Bible College)

      History and faith:
      Stephen Evans (Baylor University)
      Richard Bauckham (University of St Andrews)

      Johannine dualism and contemporary pluralism:
      Miroslav Volf (Yale University)
      Stephen Barton (University of Durham)
      There will be a half-day focus on the Lazarus narrative (John 11) in
      multi-disciplinary perspective: historical critical study, philosophy,
      social science, literary study, history of exegesis, the arts, and
      theology. Contributors will include:
      Marianne Meye Thompson (Fuller Theological Seminary)
      Andrew Lincoln (University of Gloucester)
      Christopher Seitz (University of St Andrews)
      Alan Torrance (University of St Andrews)
      Ronald Piper (University of St Andrews)
      Philip Esler (University of St Andrews)
      Trevor Hart (University of St Andrews)
      It is hoped to conclude the conference with a performance of Bach’s St
      John
      Passion, preceded by a lecture on the theology of this work.

      There will be opportunity to offer short papers on topics relating to the
      Gospel of John and Christian theology (paper proposal forms are available
      on the conference website).

      The conference will begin on the evening of Monday 30 June 2003 and will
      end with breakfast on Friday 4 July 2003. We hope to arrange some leisure
      activities for any who wish to stay additional nights (at an incredibly
      low
      B&B rate). These include tours of historic St Andrews and golf at one of
      St Andrews’ world-famous courses (details will be forthcoming on the
      website).

      This is a remarkable opportunity to hear preeminent scholars like Martin
      Hengel, Jürgen Moltman and Rowan Williams while enjoying St Andrews in its
      summer splendour. Please put the dates in your diary and tell your
      friends
      and colleagues!

      It will assist planning for the conference if you e-mail us to tell us you
      are thinking of coming: write to john2003@... . Special
      conference and accommodation rates are guaranteed for those who register
      before 15 July 2002. Given this opportunity and the exceptional
      accommodation rates we have secured, numbers are limited.
