Two years ago, Fred Sanders at Biola and Oliver Crisp at Fuller decided to organize and host a new series of lectures in constructive dogmatics, located in that God-forsaken wasteland known as Southern California. Okay, just kidding about the last bit. The lectures have been similar to the Kantzer Lectures in Revealed Theology, organized by Kevin Vanhoozer at TEDS and inaugurated by John Webster in 2007. The difference is that the Los Angeles series features multiple presenters. It is very encouraging to see our evangelical institutions sponsoring serious theology.
The topic for the first LA Theology Conference was “Christology, Ancient and Modern.” The lectures have been published as a book. You can also view the individual lectures, as well as the group discussion, in the videos below. The presenters include Alan Torrance, George Hunsinger, Katherine Sonderegger, Peter Leithart, and a pre-beard Oliver Crisp.
The lectures were added to YouTube last year, but I have only just now started to view them. So far, I have watched Crisp’s and Torrance’s lectures, both of which I thoroughly enjoyed.
