Requirements for Participation

Christian Theology and the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In 2013 the Christian Theology and Bible Section will hold three sessions that will explore the tropological or moral sense of Scripture. One session of invited papers will review and discuss the forthcoming book by Gary Anderson entitled Charity. A second session of invited papers will explore the imprecatory Psalms read tropologically. For our open session, we solicit papers on the tropological (moral) sense of Scripture that will focus on (a) tropological readings of a particular text or set of texts; (b) the tropological readings of a specific author or theologian; or (c) tropological readings that stem from a particular movement or time period in the history of interpretation (e.g., patristic, medieval, reformation). An additional session, co-sponsored with the Theological Interpretation of Scripture Seminar will offer a panel discussion of Walter Moberly’s forthcoming Old Testament Theology: Reading the Hebrew Bible as Christian Scripture.
