Jewish-Christian Dialogue and Sacred Texts

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Our section is sponsoring two sessions for San Antonio. One is an open session, all relevant proposals welcome. The other session is titled "Has God Brought Us All Laughter? Jews, Christians, Humor and the Bible." In this session, we seek to explore the role of humor in the interpretation and application of Scripture among Jews and Christians. In keeping with the overall theme of our section, we especially look forward to proposals that also identify or embody this humor as part of Jewish-Christian dialogue.
