“What I Learned While Translating Medieval Latin Commentaries in Coffee Shops”  -  Dr. Joy A. Schroeder  
Why are coffee shops such good places to translate Latin biblical commentaries? What do medieval men and women who interpreted Genesis and Jeremiah have to say to modern preachers? What did Thomas Aquinas have to say about biblical dragons? And why were dragons in the Latin version of Jeremiah in the first place? Dr. Joy Schroeder will share insights from her two volumes in the Bible in Medieval Tradition commentary series (Eerdmans Publishing).
“Could Luther have spearheaded the Reformation without Paul?” – Dr. Walter F. Taylor, Jr.

Would Luther have done his reforming work without the Apostle to the nations? Among the topics to be discussed: Luther's use of Paul's writings; Luther's identity with Paul; the use of Paul in Roman Catholic and Protestant churches today.
