Section Open Session Theme Announcements

In addition to an invited session, sections also manage one open session at the annual meeting. The following sections have announced themes for their open sessions. Submissions to these units should conform to the announced theme.

  • Pentateuch

    The Pentateuch Section provides a setting within the Evangelical Theological Society for presentation and discussion of research on the Pentateuch. This year the Pentateuch Section will host one invited session and one open session, each consisting of four presentations. We welcome proposals for papers to be presented at the open session, especially papers that explore the Pentateuch in its ancient Near Eastern context and reflect upon its theological significance for today. Proposed papers need not relate to this year’s conference theme (“The Holy Spirit”), although they certainly may. Successful proposals will have a well-defined topic and a clear thesis and will actively engage the relevant primary and secondary sources.
