It’s been a while since I’ve posted, so let me catch up on a few things until I get back to Ellis chapter 4.
First and foremost, I was delighted to be able to attend the ASA 2016 annual meeting, enjoying it without the responsibility of being the executive director for the first time since 2004. Azusa Pacific University was a great site for the meeting. The lodging, meals, and meeting rooms were in close proximity and served as a great locale. Above all, the plenary talks were excellent. All recordings are available here. My favorite was Bill Newsome’s talk on neuroscience. He brought ideas very similar to what George Ellis is talking about. He credits Nancey Murphy and colleagues just like Ellis does. It’s worth a listen.
There’s also a great summary of the meeting by Scott Buchanan in his blog. It’s well worth reading.
I’ve also had to interrupt my reading of Ellis to review and endorse Denis Lamoureux’s forthcoming book. Hope to discuss it in the future on this blog.
And a second interruption was to read Kenton Spark’s “Sacred Words, Broken Words” for our Grace Chapel book discussion group. Also an excellent read.
So all this explains my hiatus on Ellis. I hope to be back at it soon.
If any of you readers attended the meeting, how about a comment to tell us how you liked it and your favorite talk.
