For those of you attending the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature meetings this year please join us for a book panel discussion on the evening of Sunday, November 18th from 6:30 – 8:30 pm in the Mt. Oxford Room of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Denver, CO. A panel, composed of Paul Martens (Baylor University), Elizabeth Phillips (Visiting Scholar, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge, and Honorary Fellow in the Department of Theology and Religion, Durham University), and Nancy Bedford (Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary) will engage in discussion of two recent works in political theology: the first, Travis Kroeker’s (McMaster University) Messianic Political Theology and Diaspora Ethics: Essays in Exile and the second, Kyle Gingerich Hiebert’s (Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre) The Architectonics of Hope: Violence, Apocalyptic, and the Transformation of Political Theology. The authors will respond. Both texts are published by Wipf & Stock who are kindly sponsoring the session and Philip Ziegler (University of Aberdeen) will chair.
