BEST Conference on The Covenant
30 & 31 March, 2017

In Dutch theology, it has long been quiet around the theme of the covenant. This is remarkable, because in the past this theme evoked heated discussions, without agreement being reached. It seems that North American theologians have taken over the subject, because they publish one book after another on it. There is enough material for that: new insights from Biblical Studies and Systematic Theology deserve to be processed, also in Europe. Themes that are clearly linked to covenant theology, such as infant baptism, the relationship between the individual and the community, the value of relationships, and the position of Israel and the Church, are currently even more relevant than before.

There is therefore more than enough reason to put covenant theology back on the agenda. The BEST Research Group of the Theological Universities in Apeldoorn and Kampen aims to do this at an international conference in Apeldoorn on 30 and 31 March this year. Besides aspects from Biblical Studies and Systematic Theology also the historical inquiry into the development of Reformed covenant theology will be discussed. Both members of the research group from Apeldoorn and Kampen and theologians from home and abroad will contribute. The language of the conference is English.
Date: 30 March, 10:00 to 20:30; 31 March 9:00 to 16:00.

Cost: 95 EUR for two days (including two lunches and one dinner). Cost for one day: 50 EUR.
Registration: registration[at]tua.nl.

If desired, a certificate can be supplied as proof of attending this conference as part of continuing education for pastors.
