The whole conference concluded with an opportunity to put a few questions to the speakers as a panel. That was a good time. Then after lunch we were all off. Despite a little a snow that morning travel didn't prove too difficult. One of the speakers, Michael Horton, came home with me and stayed the night. I took him to Heathrow this morning. It was good to have further fellowship in that way. Michael is a professor in Westminster West and the father of triplets! Copies of his magazine Modern Reformation were given to everyone at the conference.
It was a very good conference that provided sidelights on all sorts of issues. I get the impression that it is the younger men who are most attracted to new covenant theology in its various forms. I was attracted as a young man myself. The attraction seems to be the emphasis on exegesis over against systematics. Rightly the approach "where will these lead to?" was rejected by the conference. I personally want to reject NCT as it stands. It is important to say, however, that it is not so very different in practice and perhaps has some insights for us to take on board.
We were very kindly given CDs and mp3s to take home with us. Affinity can be found here.
I hope my blogs have been of interest to someone. I'm only sorry I was not able to to convey more of the fun and finesse. Bob Letham began what became a running joke on Percy the tank engine that has gone largely unreported. I enjoyed the informal fellowship with several men especially Heresy Huntin Martin Downes, Mark Thomas and others, especially from Wales. I even had time to ask Iain D Campbell (thanks for the link) about Julie Fowlis.
Anyway it's good to be back. Lots to do.
