Dr Witherington is the Amos Professor of New Testament for Doctoral Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary and is on the doctoral faculty at St. Andrews University in Scotland. He has authored over thirty books, including The Jesus Quest and The Paul Quest, both of which were selected as top biblical studies by Christianity Today. Dr Witherington was one of the NT experts consulted by Lee Strobel for The Case for Christ and is an elected member of the prestigious SNTS, a society dedicated to New Testament studies.

I’d love to attend the entire thing, however, I am giving my conference paper, “Does Evolution Make Belief in God Untenable?” at The Theology and Natural Sciences Conference on the Saturday and then I’ll be joining Madeleine on Waiheke Island for her Grandfather’s memorial gathering.
