International Conference 2018
Evangelicals and Oppression: Eastern European Perspectives
18-20 April 2018
A joint IBTSC Amsterdam and EBF Theology and Education Commission conference
To be held at the Baptist House, Postjesweg 150, 1061 AX Amsterdam
The conference explores the topic 'Evangelicals and Oppression' in a wide-ranging way and from different angles: oppression that Eastern European Evangelicals have met in their history; elements of oppression that Evangelicals have created themselves in relation to other groups or within their own church life; conflict and community; religious freedom and political pressures; Biblical interpretation and persecution in Evangelical life; spiritual practices in times of persecution and oppression; reception of and reactions to oppression and tensions; practices of forgiveness in historical perspective.
Submissions of papers for consideration (to last no more than 30 minutes in delivery) are welcome. We plan to publish some of the conference papers in a separate volume or in the IBTSC Amsterdam journal Baptistic Theologies.
Contact Dr Toivo Pilli email@example.com if you require further information. If you are interested in presenting a paper please send Dr Pilli the title and a short description of your paper for consideration by the conference organisers.
Participants are responsible for their travel and accommodation arrangements.
A limited number of travel scholarships are available for participants from Eastern Europe, depending on the number of applications.
