Downtown New Orleans

I headed downtown this morning. Dropped in on the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS) /Evangelical Philosophical Society (EPS) conference being held at the Sheraton and the JW Marriott. Memo to self: must look into membership.

Memorable moments: Ran across Christian apologist Mike Licona speaking to a guy in the hallway. Later in the day, ran into Craig Evans, one of the world's top New Testament scholars and spoke to him briefly. He conducted a seminar in Charlottetown a few years back and I met him then.

Had lunch at K-Paul's Louisiana Kitchen. Cheeseburger soup (!) and hot cajun curry. Delicious! Later, I swung by Café du Monde for a helping of beignets and chicory-laced coffee. Tip: don't wear black pants when eating the beignets. Trust me on this.

Attended the Apologetics Conference this evening, up at the NOBTS. I'll summarize the talks in a bit.
