Reports Relating To The Forty-Fifth Annual Meeting Of The Society

More than 550 persons registered for the forty-fifth annual meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society held at the McLean Hilton just outside of Washington, D.C. The three-day conference was held November 18-20, 1993, and centered around the appropriate theme of “God and Caesar.” Participants came from around the world for fellowship and the exchange of ideas. They came also to critique one another and to keep up with the most recent scholarship in their disciplines.

One of the highlights presented by program chairman Russ Bush was a plenary session conducted by Richard C. Halverson, chaplain of the United States Senate. He spoke of the need of every individual in the Church to influence society at all times. His message is published in this issue of JETS. Melinda Delahoyde addressed the gathering on “Rethinking the Pro-Life Mission: A New Direction, an Open Door.” Another plenary session featured John J. Bimson speaking on “The Origin of Israel: Recent Advances and Future Prospectives.” A trialogue session on the topic of “Accessing Restricted-Access Countries: Dynamics of Doing Missions in Islamic Zones” was moderated by Keith Eitel.

The 350 who attended the annual banquet were not only treated to delicious fare at the table but also heard Gerry Breshears deliver his insightful presidential address on “The Body of Christ: Prophet, Priest, or King?”

Meeting simultaneously with ETS were the Evangelical Philosophical Society, the Evangelical Missions Society, the Near East Archaeological Society and the Adventist Theological Society. The dispensational study group met on Thursday morning just prior to the start of the conference. More than 135 additional parallel sessions were conducted during the meetings.

We look forward to our next annual meeting, November 17-19, 1994, at the Lisle-Naperville Hilton in Lisle, Illinois, when the theme will be “Hermeneutics: Issues and Concerns.”

During the first business session ETS president Gerry Breshears welcomed the participants and introduced president-elect Russ Bush, who gave a devotional. After the adoption of the program agenda, secretarytreasurer James Borland presented the membership and financial reports:
