One of the papers that I really enjoyed at ETS was Michael Bird’s first one on New Testament canon. Thoughtful, thought provoking, well communicated and funny. I especially appreciated his plea to include early church history as part of doing a New Covenant Theology (not the NCT of Sovereign Grace fame). I picked up two copies of his book The Saving Righteousness of God for Justin and Clint’s birthdays. As I glossed it over I thought that it looks like a very important contribution to the debate on the New Perspective on Paul. I also enjoyed Bird’s interaction with Denny Burke at Burke’s paper on the “righteousness of God.”
Anyways, all that to say, Bird has posted his thoughts on ETS here.
