Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: In 2014, it is planned that there will be an open session together with the European Association of Biblical Studies (EABS) Family group on the topic of "Constructing Families". Critical contextual studies of how genealogies are understood and in what ways they play the role of shaping the people's construction of families. The tentative theme is "Constructing Families: How Genealogies Help and Hinder." In the following years we will continue our contextual biblical interpretation of different books of the Bible for the book series of Texts@Contexts. In 2015 and 2016 the Latin American and Asian contexts respectively will be the focus. Wisdom Literature and Apocalyptic Writings will be the chosen categories.
