Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Bible and the Role of Philosophy: Theology after the Hellenization Thesis. We seek proposals exploring the interaction between the Bible and/or the gospel with philosophy in the ongoing task of Christian doctrine. We imagine papers reacting to the old "hellenization" thesis [Greek philosophy corrupting the pure gospel]; other types are welcome also. Speakers must be either CTRF or SBL members. Proposals can be made to as well as the SBL site. Visit
