Radical Orthodoxy and the Reformed Tradition

I just got a notice in the mail today about a conference on this topic at Calvin College in September 2003. Plenary speakers are John Milbank, Graham Ward, James Olthuis, and James K.A. Smith.

James Smith, who recently joined the faculty at Calvin, also seems to be in the process of constructing a radical orthodoxy website. He is the author of The Fall of Interpretation: Philosophical Foundations for a Creational Hermeneutic (IVP 2000), which I enjoyed reading for a local bookclub. Most recently he published Speech and Theology: Language and the Logic of Incarnation, Radical Orthodoxy Series (Routledge 2002), which I look forward to reading. Currently he's working a book which will be called Reforming Radical Orthodoxy: Towards a Post-secular Worldview, to be published by Baker.
