Back from AAR

Posting has been hit-or-miss recently with academic pressures mounting in anticipation of the holiday season rush. More recently, I and Chris (of Disruptive Grace) attended the first two days of the 2006 American Academy of Religion conference in Washington, D.C., primarily in order to attend the Karl Barth Society meetings. I will offer summary accounts of the papers we heard. The meetings we attended were very good. Over the course of Friday and Saturday, we heard papers or presentations by Philip Ziegler, Wolf Krötke, Walter Lowe, George Hunsinger, Archie Spencer, David Bentley Hart, Richard B. Hays, and N. T. Wright. In addition, I spent a nice sum of money at the book exhibits. More on all this later.
