In celebration of upcoming 500th anniversary of Erasmus’ Greek text and the Reformation, the Department of Theology at HBU, in conjunction with the Dunham Bible Museum, is pleased to host the conference Ad Fontes, Ad Futura: Erasmus’ Bible and the Impact of Scripture. The conference will focus on textual and historical issues regarding the development of the Bible and its impact on society. Our keynote speakers include Craig Evans (Houston Baptist University), Timothy George (Beeson Divinity School, Samford University), Herman Selderhuis (Theological University Apeldoorn) and Daniel Wallace (Dallas Theological Seminary). The plenary talks are free and open to the public.
 
We will also have a number of short papers discussing the development of the Bible and its impact on society. We will shortly issue a call for papers addressing topics such as: the historical context of the creation of the Bible especially in its textual traditions, the history of the Greek text, Bible translation, the formation of the canon, the Bible in the Reformation and post-Reformation period.
