Power of the Word International Conference V.
13 -16 September 2017
Regent’s Park College, Oxford.
The most recent conference, the fifth in this series, was held in Oxford, at Regent’s Park College, in September 2017 and focused on “The Prophetic Word.” The exact title was “The Power of the Word: The Prophetic Word (Poetry, Theology and Philosophy in conversation)”.
Once again, the core of participants came from the UK, the USA, and continental Europe, with a significant group again from Poland and Italy and newcomers to the project from Latin America. It was encouraging to see that the topic of the conference drew in for the first time a number of classicists as well as a larger group of biblical scholars and students.
