Third Fred B. Craddock Seminar To Be Held In Dallas

The Stalcup School of Theology for the Laity will hold the Third Fred B. Craddock Seminar on the Gospels Sept. 27 in Dallas, Texas. The seminar is entitled "Negotiating the (Roman) Empire in the New Testament" and will be presented by Warren Carter, a nationally known New Testament scholar. Carter is Professor of New Testament at Brite Divinity School. His work focuses on the gospels of Matthew and John and the issue of the ways in which early Christians negotiated the Roman Empire.

Among the topics to be presented during the study is the question of how contemporary followers of Jesus negotiate contemporary forms of empire. The seminar will be held at Northway Christian Church. Registration is $35 and includes a light lunch.
