Philip Thompson on "Locating Baptist Dogmatics"

Earlier this summer I participated on the program of the Baptist History and Heritage Society Annual Conference on the theme "Baptists and Theology" held at First Baptist Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, June 7-9, 2012. The Baptist History and Heritage Society has now made available on the society's web site links to video of selected papers and plenary addresses from the conference, including a paper presented by Philip E. Thompson, Professor of Systematic Theology and Christian Heritage at Sioux Falls Seminary in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on "Locating Baptist Dogmatics: Defining and Defending Baptist Identity in the Absence of a Normative Theology" (video embedded above). In my opinion Dr. Thompson's paper among those I was able to hear was the one that got most directly to the heart of the issues under discussion at the conference.

The site also includes a link to video of my own paper presentation "Baptist Theology in Dialogue: Reports of  International Bilateral Conversations with Baptist World Alliance Participation as Expressions of Baptist Constructive Theology," along with several other addresses and presentations of interest to readers of Ecclesial Theology.
