Mennonite Scholars and Friends at the AAR/SBL

About

The Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) has been designated to coordinate the Mennonite Scholars and Friends (MSF) events at the American Academy of Religion/Society of Biblical Literature (AAR/SBL), which meets every November. We do this on behalf of Mennonite and Anabaptist-affiliated post-secondary institutions, and the many individual scholars who participate in these events. The reception and forum are open to any who wish to attend.
