Texan friends (and those nearby), it appears that the week of April 7th-13th will include some excellent scholarship coming to the area. I mentioned the conference with Darrell Bock, Craig Evans, Gary Habermas, and Daniel Wallace (see my post on the Christian Renaissance Apologia Conference). Well, it appears Larry Hurtado will be in the state at the same time. He is lecturing at Rice University and Houston Baptist University April 10th-12th. Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend his lectures in Houston (though I will be in Dallas on Saturday the 13th to hear Bock, Evans, and Habermas), but if you can make it I encourage it. For more info, read this post: Hurtado Lectures in Houston (April).
