Call for Papers: Society of Asian Biblical Studies

Follow THEOLOGY@Brisbane on

The 2014 meeting of the Society of Asian Biblical Studies will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand from 23 to 25 June. One of the principal objectives of SABS is to foster biblical scholarship and research in Asia that takes seriously the Asian context—its cultures, religions and methodologies. It is therefore imperative that papers presented at this meeting are attempts to understand the Bible from varied Asian perspectives.  Proposals for papers that deal with our theme of Violence in the Human and Earth Community – Asian Biblical Response will be especially welcome.
