Looks good. Great topic worth some great discussion. I’m particularly looking forward to the interaction on this topic among the speakers, especially the thoughts of John Piper and Mark Driscoll (You can check out Piper’s recent comments about “contextualizing the gospel” here).
I know that Driscoll and his crew are usually really good about posting their content on the web for free, but I was kicking myself in the shins for missing the last conference (Reform and Resurge ’06), so if I can make the finances work for the plane ticket and registration (which is only $99), then I’m going to bounce out there to Seattle and juggle my studies those weeks, because I think it will be worth it.
Here’s some brief info on the conference with a link to the schedule and more info over at The Resurgence site.
