Biblical Theology

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: 1. Invited Panel to review Magne Saebø (ed.), Hebrew Bible / Old Testament The History of Its Interpretation Hebrew Bible / Old Testament. III: From Modernism to Post-Modernism. 2. Open Session: Biblical Theology: so what is it and where is it going, if anywhere? Papers which interact with OT theologies or NT Theologies of the last ten years or which move to consider the issue of Whole Bible theology with reference to current treatments (again, post-2000) will be welcomed. The relationship between biblical theology, church lectionaries and preaching will also be considered. To what extent is biblical theology some kind of 'ecclesial theology'? There might also be space for papers on the following: Is there a place for a confessional Jewish position, or a non-confessional 'secular' theology of the bible? Are there some biblical themes which are less 'divisive' than others?
