For ten years, pastor-theologian Greg Boyd has wrestled with one question: How can Christians reconcile the peaceful life and message of Jesus with the violent depictions of God in the Old Testament? The result of his struggle was a breakthrough discovery: the Cruciform Hermeneutic.
Having been released in his books, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God and Cross Vision, Greg is going to present this revolutionary way to read the Bible at the first annual Re|Knew Conference. Held at Woodland Hills Church in St. Paul, the conference will be an exciting time of presentations, music, networking, and prayer. You’ll come away challenged and inspired.
Don’t miss it!

Q: Who is the Re|Knew Conference for?
A: The Re|Knew Conference is for anyone who’s perplexed by the violent depictions of God in the Old Testament and how they seem to contradict Jesus’ portrayal of God as loving and peaceful. This includes pastors, but it also includes many other people, too. During the conference, we will have affinity groups for you to discuss the implications of the cruciform hermeneutic in your own life and ministry.
Q: What will I get at the conference that I can’t get in Greg’s books?
A: Greg’s books, Cross Vision and The Crucifixion of the Warrior God, develop his argument in writing, but there’s nothing like hearing him speak about these ideas. Plus, at the conference, Greg will be in conversation with others—some of whom don’t always agree with him. And there will be chances for you to ask your own questions as well.
Q: Are meals included?
A: Snacks, refreshments, coffee, tea, etc. will be provided, but meals are on your own. We will provide lots of local restaurant suggestions, and we can even help you find someone to eat with!
Q: How should I get there?
A: Woodland Hills Church is on the east side of St. Paul, Minnesota. The closest airport is Minneapolis-St. Paul (MSP). There is ample parking at the church if you drive or rent a car. Ride-sharing services like Uber and Lyft cost about $30 from MSP to Woodland Hills.
Q: Where should I stay?
A: Watch this spot for negotiated room blocks at local hotels. But, to be honest, you’ll get the best rates using an online service like Priceline, Kayak, or Trivago. Also, consider AirBnB or another house-sharing site.
Q: What is your refund policy?
A: Through August 30, 2017, you may have your registration refunded, less a $25 handling fee. As of September 1, there are no refunds.
Q: Is there a discount for seminary students? How about for members of Woodland Hills Church?
A: There are no discounts during the Super Early Bird registration. After that, if you are a seminary student, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code (you will have to register with your .edu email account). And if you attend Woodland Hills, watch the bulletin for a code.
Q: Can I bring a group?
A: Yes, groups are encouraged! And if you register a group of five or more, you get a free copy of Crucifixion of the Warrior God!
Q: Can my organization sponsor the conference?
A: Yes, we welcome sponsors at various levels. If you would like information, please email email@example.com.
Q: Are you going to do this again next year?
A: Yes, we plan to!
