Requirements for Participation

Latter-day Saints and the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Latter-day Saints and the Bible section invites presentation proposals for two sessions. One session will be an open forum in which presenters may engage any aspect of the Bible or its reception within the wider LDS tradition. Among the timely topics that might be considered are responses to books or articles published in the last two or three years by LDS authors or about LDS biblical studies. The other session will focus on readings of sexual or sexualized violence in the Bible. Approaches that consider these “texts of terror” for reception, relevance or teaching insights for an LDS audience are particularly welcome.
