Christian Theology and the Bible

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Christian Theology and the Bible unit welcomes papers on any topic relating to the intersection of Christian theology and the Bible, whether exegetically driven, focused on a specific text(s), or more topical in nature, oriented toward, say, a particular doctrine. The unit strives for balance between the two testaments of Christian Scripture. For 2021, the unit expects three sessions: the first will be devoted to a review of Garrett Green's Imagining Theology (2020). A second consisting mostly of invited papers, will consider the corporeality of God. A third session is open.
