STAANZ Conference

After much debate about dates and venues, Nicola Hoggard Creegan from Auckland, and Hugh Bowron from Christchurch, have decided to organise a STAANZ (Systematic Theology Association in Aotearoa New Zealand) conference in Auckland on November 19/20. Venue is to be the heart of Ponsonby, at Ponsonby Baptist Church Hall - so they can enjoy the cafes for lunch and dinner.
The theme for the conference will be eschatology and pneumatology. Nicola and Hugh would be happy for you to circulate this information to other theologians, and also to graduate students who might be interested.

So far, the following people have already promised papers:
Hugh Bowron "Holy Spirit in the Work of Walter Kasper"
Martin Sutherland "Completing Barth? Helmut Thielicke the Spirit"
Myk Habets "Infant Salvation?"
Linda Paterson, Antony Glading, and Judith Brown have also promised papers.
Please send paper proposals to:
Nicola Hoggard Creegan at or
Hugh Bowron

Proposals should be sent if possible before the end of September. A programme will be circulated by early November at the latest.
