Call For Papers: “Spirit, Scripture, Ethics: Pneumatological Engagements with Knotty Ethical Issues”

The SCE will host two sessions in 2011 under the title “Spirit, Scripture, Ethics: Pneumatological Engagements with Knotty Ethical Issues.”

The first session will be comprised of invited papers.

For the second session, we invite proposals for pneumatological explorations of the intersection of Scripture and ethics. The primary focus may be either methodological or substantive. The topic may be approached from the side of either biblical studies or Christian ethics, but must foster conversation across the disciplinary boundaries. Each paper must give attention to the entailments of its argument for one particular ‘knotty’ ethical issue.
