Call for Proposals

70th Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society

Nov 13-15, 2018, Denver, CO

Theme: “Holy Spirit”

All full members of ETS and all student members enrolled in Ph.D. programs are invited to submit papers on this year’s theme, “Holy Spirit.” We encourage papers that consider this theme from a variety of perspectives including theological, historical, and exegetical/biblical.

Of course, we also welcome papers on topics unrelated to the annual theme. Sections have announced the specific themes for their open sessions which can be found at: Note: not all section themes are currently posted.

When making a paper proposal, please use the ETS website and follow the instructions to submit your abstract. Keep in mind that an acceptable paper is one that can be delivered in 25-30 minutes, followed by an additional 5-10 minutes of discussion.

The proposal period opens March 1 and closes at 5PM (CST) on March 29th. For questions about the annual meeting, please reach out to the ETS staff:

Thank you for being a part of the Evangelical Theological Society. We look forward to an annual meeting that is both intellectually rich and spiritually edifying.
