CTR (2014) v3.2


The first three articles in this issue of CTR are revisions of papers given at the annual fall regional conference of the Canadian Evangelical Theological Association (CETA) held on October 18, 2014 at Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto, Toronto, ON. The theme of the conference was “Towards an Evangelical Feminism.” The first article is a lightly revised version of the keynote address given by Marion Ann Taylor, Professor of Old Testament at Wycliffe College. The second article, by Marina Hofman, won CETA’s Jack and Phyllis Middleton Memorial Award, an annual competition that awards graduate students for a paper demonstrating excellence in the field of Theology. In addition to the three articles from the CETA conference are two in the area of Pauline Theology, and a third concerning Missiology.
