The 2007 Biblical Horizons Annual Weeklong Bible Conference will be 23-27 July. Starting Monday evening, ending Friday at noon. Thus, four nights stay, unless you want to come early or stay later.
The topic this year is Outside the Box. Speakers on the topic will be Peter Leithart on the challenging work of Eugen Rosenstock-Huessy; Mark Horne on Ephesians; Blake Purcell on Russian Orthodoxy; James Jordan on Nazirites and Knights, including Rohmer’s film Percival. There will be other speakers and other topics as well.
The Conference fee is $75 per person, $100 per nuclear family (regardless of how many). This can be paid when you arrive.
We should appreciate knowing if you plan to attend, so that we can plan accordingly. Here are the places people usually stay.

Holiday Inn Express
It’s about the same distance and about $30 more per night. 850-678-9131. You might do better online.
Most people stay at Comfort Inn. There is also Hampton Inn, but it is more expensive and farther away. There are a couple of old hole-in-the-wall motels near the Church. Okay for people on a tight budget. Let me know if you want information about any of these. Lots of expensive places in Destin and Fort Walton Beach, of course. Also, it is possible to rent Beach Houses and condominia in the Destin area. For information call Destin Chamber of Commerce, 1-850-837-6241.
Meeting Place: Trinity Presbyterian Church, Valparaiso, Florida. Phone: 678-0060.
Airport: Okaloosa County Air Terminal (Fort Walton Beach; airport code is VPS).
Now, NEW TAPES are available. I’ve been lecturing on Old Testament survey at the Dabney Study Center, and we now have a set of 16 tapes surveying Numbers through Jeremiah. (If you want these lectures on CD or MP3, go to http://store.auburnavenue.org). The advantage of buying them from us is that we include the notes.
We are also making available Peter Leithart’s Dabney Center lectures on Postmodernism. Your chance to find out what the fuss is all about.
