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, articles or papers published or presented in the last two or three years that involve any element of LDS biblical scholarship or reception of the Bible. The other session will focus on biblical translation within or for an LDS context. Engagement with the King James Version or any aspect of Thomas A. Wayment’s book, The New Testament: A New Translation for Latter-day Saints, is particularly welcome.
