Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: One or two open sessions will be dedicated to literary readings of Hebrew Bible, New Testament and relevant extra-biblical ancient texts. In addition, the Section is sponsoring one special session (open call and invited papers), "Paul: Between Theology and Theory." Papers will explore the points of intersection between traditional theological readings of Paul and more contemporary theoretical approaches in ways that might encourage dialogue between them and open them to new perspectives. For more info on this session only, contact Andrew Wilson at or Jamie Smith at
