Requirements for Participation

Theological Interpretation of Scripture

Program Unit Type: Seminar
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The Theological Interpretation of Scripture group will host 2 sessions at the 2023 annual meeting. The first will be a book review panel of Amy Peeler's Women and the Gender of God (Eerdmans, 2022). The second will be a session on Old Testament Lectionary texts for Advent for which we will be accepting papers. Any lectionary may be consulted and papers may focus on one or multiple texts. We are especially interested in how interpretation of these texts is shaped by this setting in the church calendar, including sitting alongside the other lectionary texts and the role these passages play in the liturgy.
