The Evangelical Theological Society (Dr. Alva J. McClain was one of the charter founding members of ETS) begins its annual meeting today in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania.
The FGBC, Grace Theological Seminary, and BMH Books will be represented by a number of attendees and several participants in the program.
Among those on the program to present papers are Brent Sandy and Terry Hofecker of the Grace faculty, along with BMH authors Robert C. Clouse and Robert D. Culver.
“Christianity in the Early Centuries” will be the theme of the Evangelical Theological Society’s annual meeting Nov. 16-18 in Valley Forge, Pa. Society leaders chose the topic to refute what Edwin Yamauchi, the conference’s program chair, called “disinformation” about exactly how the church came to be.
Also on the agenda for the society will be a proposal to accept as part of its bylaws the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, a document drafted nearly three decades ago by a large group of leading evangelical scholars. The society’s executive committee will recommend adopting the Chicago Statement in order to clarify the group’s stance on Scripture.
