Wheaton College have announced this year’s conference theme, Christian Political Witness. The speakers include Stanley Hauerwas, Peter Leithart, Scot McKnight, William Cavanaugh, Dana Bennett, David Gitari, and many more.
Our conference title is drawn from the words of Jesus to his disciples, “On my account you will be brought before governors and kings as witnesses to them and to the Gentiles” (Matt. 10:18). The 2013 Wheaton Theology Conference explores the biblical and theological contours of the complex relationship between Christian faith and political authority. The conference seeks to deepen the church’s understanding of the political implications of the Gospel that proclaims Jesus Christ as Lord of Lords and King of Kings. Special attention will be given to the competing claims of homage, obedience, loyalty and sacrifice.
