Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Papers for the 2014 Annual Meeting in San Diego are invited on any topics directly pertinent to Latter-day Saints and the Bible including the translation or interpretation of passages in the Old or New Testament, the LDS reception of the Bible, Joseph Smith Translation emendations, or inter-textual studies between the Bible and restoration scriptures. Papers exploring the notion of what is scripture or the role of scripture in North American history are encouraged. Comparisons with other Christian denominations or non-Christian traditions—in interpretation or methods of scripture study—are also welcome. A probable second session will be held on the topic of "perspectives on biblical apocalyptic literature" comparing primarily LDS and evangelical perspectives. Papers will be invited, but submissions under this topic will also be considered for inclusion.
