The Toronto Mennonite Theological Centre (TMTC) in co-operation with the Institute for Mennonite Studies (IMS) is delighted to announce the relaunch of the Anabaptist Mennonite Scholars Network (AMSN).
A recent special issue of the journal Political Theology, guest-edited by TMTC associate Maxwell Kennel, showcases interdisciplinary approaches to political theology in and around the Mennonite tradition.
The issue includes an introduction that situates the essays in relation to both political theology and Mennonite studies, and four essays that cover Mennonite-feminist, queer and literary, and historical and theological approaches to Mennonite political theology.
The 2021 TMTC Public Lecture took place virtually on Wednesday, 24 March 2021. Dr. Chris Huebner, Associate Professor of Theology and Philosophy at Canadian Mennonite University, presented a lecture entitled "Absent Fathers, Invisible Mothers, and the Irrepressible Dance of Love: A Reading of the Theological Virtues as Epistemological Virtues." A response was provided by Dr. Néstor Medina, Assistant Professor of Religious Ethics and Culture at Emmanuel College.
The 2021 Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum, scheduled to take place at the AAR/SBL meetings in San Antonio, Texas on Friday 19 November 2021, will focus on the theme of "Women, Liberation, and the Bible."
The Mennonite Scholars and Friends Forum, which takes place annually in conjunction with the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature meetings, took place virtually on Friday, 20 November 2020. The Forum this year consisted of a round table conversation on the newly released volume Recovering from the Anabaptist Vision, the first volume in T&T Clark's Studies in Anabaptist Theology and Ethics series managed by our friends at the Institute of Mennonite Studies at Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary. While it was disappointing not to be able to gather in person, the virtual format enabled broader participation and we were delighted to have all the editors and contibutors to the volume present as well as roughly 80 participants. The presentations and Q&A sessions were recorded and we are pleased to make those available online.
In his new book, Who Are Our Enemies and How Do We Love Them?Hyung Jin (Pablo) Kim Sun, current PhD student at Emmanuel College and pastor at Toronto Mennonite New Life Church, invites us into a conversation on God's call to love our enemies.
The Spring 2020 issue of the Conrad Grebel Review is now available online. The issue includes an essay by TMTC Research Fellow Jason Reimer Greig as well as a number of other provocative pieces on the intersection of Anabaptist theology and disability theology.
