ETTC Call for Papers

Newbold Academic Press will publish the proceedings of the 2015 European Theology Teachers Convention.


Ecclesia reformata semper reformanda

Since the last General Conference Session in 2010, ‘revival’ and ‘reformation’ have become crucial words in the church vocabulary, two leading principles which should sustain its thinking and mission at any level.

What is the task and responsibility of the didaskaloi in this process of aggiornamento?

Ellen White opened a challenging way:

‘We have many lessons to learn, and many, many to unlearn’ (Ellen G. White, Review and Herald, 26/07/1892).

What do we have to learn and to unlearn in the fields of Biblical Studies, Systematics, and Practical Theology?
What should be the leading methodological principles at work in this on-going and never-ending process?

Revival and reformation cannot be a mere repetition of the past.

The challenge of this conference is to explore and discuss new ways of teaching theology that would help the church in its specific European context, to develop and to grow.
