In the weeks approaching the conference, we are going to highlight several of our plenary speakers in order to show the caliber of though that we hope to inculcate here. First up is Dr. John Walton.
John Walton is Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College. His primary focus is in areas of comparison between the Old Testament and the Ancient Near East, particularly Genesis. He is the general editor for a five volume series, The Zondervan Illustrated Bible Backgrounds Commentary, and the forthcoming NIV Cultural Background Study Bible. He is the author of many books including The Lost World of Genesis 1 and The Lost World of Adam and Eve. He lectures across the country and around the world on the topic of Origins.
Here is a lecture he gave recently on Genesis and the Origins debate.
