Requirements for Participation

Writings (including Psalms)


Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: Papers are welcome on any part of the Writings, especially papers applying newer interpretive methodologies to specific passages. Since the local committee has decided on a theme of ecology and ecological hermeneutics as a particular focus for the meeting, papers on the biblical perspective on creation, cosmology, divine kingship and the just, responsible, and sustainable use of resources according to the Writings, especially the Psalms, will get preferential treatment. The issue at stake is how the texts found in the Writings can help to change a human culture of exploitation towards one of responsible use, renewal and preservation. Other papers on the Writings are, however, also welcome.
