Moreland Speaks to 600+ Pastors

San Diego, CA - JP Moreland spoke at three major sessions at the 2008 National Pastor's Convention.

He did two 90 minute sessions on Kingdom Triangle related themes (e.g., "The mind, the heart, and the Power of the Holy Spirit" and "Sex and Secularism: Why Islam may win the West") to a total audience of about 400 pastors. JP says,
I worked through my worldview analysis and then on the the three legs of the triangle and I was deeply moved at the incredible responsiveness to the book and it's message (they sold out of KT and had to order more). This was a rare opportunity to minister to pastors and to give them hope and practical suggestions for greater impact.
To an audience of at least another 200 pastors, JP contributed to a panel discussion with Greg Boyd, Roger Olsen, and Richard Twiss concerning "Theological Trends Facing the Church." JP says,
It was a really fun time; sometimes passionate about our difference and always cordial. I liked these guys a lot and, while we have differences to be sure, there was also much about which we agreed.

I'm reading through KT right now. So awesome!

In fact, right from chapter one it started changing the way I see the world -- better equipped to be a better thinker -- that it motivated me to start a blog.

I'll soon blog about KT and its impact in my life.

Thanks & God bless!

I wasn't there at the conference, but I've found the KT book immensely helpful. The life of the mind stuff is great, and I'm all on board with that, but what I've found especially helpful with where I'm at is the stuff on spiritual disciplines and the recovery of the Spirit's power.

Has anyone listened to the audio of the panel discussion or the talks? What were the high points and what did you take away from them?

Joseph - i actually do live in Atlanta - southwest metro area, in Fairburn.

i'm looking forward to reading the book - and i had asked if there were transcripts of moreland's speech, and the blog admin said 'no.'

we need people with pastor's hearts teaching and thinking theology and doctrine these days, and not the Pharisees-r-us groups whose blogs have multiplied like rabid rabbits. i'm finishing keller's 'the reason for God,' and i expect KT to have the same heart - hope i won't be disappointed.

I've heard suggestions about Greg Boyd picking up some of the mentalities of the emergent movement. I sincerely hope this is not the case.

The Gospel seems to be at the periphery of these types of conferences occasionally, which also troubles me.

What tendencies had you heard, Joseph?

How has the reading been going through KT? Any thoughts you'd share with us?
