Everybody loves a good conference, am I right? One I’m hoping I can hit this year is the second bi-annual Together for the Gospel conference. The idea behind this conference is for Christians with various secondary differences to stand together and rejoice in what we all agree on: the greatness of the Gospel. So it’s hosted by Mark Dever, Al Mohler, Ligon Duncan and C. J. Mahaney— 2 Baptists, a Presbyterian, and a charismatic. It’s kind of a guy-walks-into-a-bar joke waiting to happen.
At any rate, the 2006 conference was great, or at least the MP3’s were. All four of the above guys spoke, and also John MacArthur, R. C. Sproul and John Piper. This year they’re also adding Thabiti Anyabwile, one of whose books I’ll be reviewing this week. You can see the titles of all the talks here.
Another cool feature that they had in 2006 but are expanding this year is the Band of Bloggers pre-conference. In 2006 this meeting before T4G sort of developed on the grassroots level, and they’re working to make it even better this year. It’s a brief conference for bloggers to interact in person, kick ideas around and basically encourage each other to “live and write with a gospel-centered emphasis.”
Unless something changes I’ll be in Prague during the conference this year. But if you’re looking for something to do April 15-17, check this stuff out.
