Ferguson Symposium at Lipscomb University

Lipscomb University is set to host a symposium in honor of Everett Ferguson:

Everett Ferguson’s Baptism in the Early Church offers an exhaustive survey of the literary and material evidence for baptismal practice in the first five centuries of Christian history. This symposium, hosted by the Christian Scholars’ Conference, brings together leading scholars to engage this magisterial work and to honor its author’s contribution to ecumenical theological scholarship (Lipscomb).

I have yet to read Ferguson’s Baptism, though it does look like a fascinating work, but I have particularly appreciated and enjoyed his Backgrounds of Early Christianity and his topical compilations of various early Christian sources in Early Christians Speak (vol. 1, vol. 2). Those interested in the symposium who can or will be around Nashville on June 4 may want to peruse further the symposium schedule and registration information.
