<< Return to SBL Forum Archive Celebrating 100 Years - Paul Minear

The Society of Biblical Literature takes great joy in letting all members know that Paul S. Minear, Winkley Professor of Biblical Theology, emeritus, at Yale Divinity School, will celebrate his 100th birthday on February 17.

Having received his Ph.D. at Yale in 1932, he began his remarkable career as a teacher of New Testament (Garrett, 1934-44; Andover Newton, 1944-56; Yale Divinity School, 1956-71). He is a prolific author (more than 25 books, nearly 150 articles), translator (NRSV Committee, 1967-88), and ecumenical leader (FAITH and ORDER Commission of the World Council of Churches, co-founder with Theodore Hesburgh of the Ecumenical Institute for Advanced Theological Study at Tantur). In 1964-65 he was President of SNTS. In 2002 Abingdon Press published a collection of his essays, The Bible and the Historian. In 2005, Westminster John Knox republished two of his well-known books, The Kingdom and the Power and Images of the Church in the New Testament (which includes a biographical essay by L. E. Keck). Together with his wife Gladys, whom he married 75 years ago, he still lives in his own home in Guilford, CT.
