Just a quick note to say that the working group ‘Explorations in Theology and Apocalyptic’ will be taking a break and will not be hosting special sessions during the annual meetings of the AAR/SBL this November, 2017. We plan to pick up our conservation again during the 2018 meetings once again.
In the meantime, keep an eye out for the April 2018 issue of Theology Today which will be a special issue on the theme of ‘Theology and Apocalyptic’. It will present a rich collection of papers, some of which have emerged from our meetings in recent years. Nancy Duff (Princeton Theological Seminary) and Philip Ziegler (University of Aberdeen) are together editing the issue.
Other recent publishing notes:
- There is a valuable new book edited by Loren Stuckenbruck and Benjamin Reynolds that will of interest. It’s entitled The Jewish Apocalyptic Tradition and the Shaping of New Testament Thought (Fortress, 2017).
- Also, watch out for Travis Kroeker‘s fine collection of essays Messianic Political Theology and Diaspora Ethics, to be published this autumn by Wipf & Stock.
