The St. Ambrose Conference on Bible and Justice will bring together scholars, clergy, students, and advocates of justice from around the world to explore how the ancient texts of the Bible might address a variety of modern justice concerns.
This international conference will work to foster discussion about the relevance of the Bible to modern social issues, while promoting bridges between the academic study of the Bible and the various endeavors for a just world.
The proceedings will be divided into four main areas: gender, empire, poverty, and the environment.
We are currently in talks with a major publishing house that is "keenly interested" in producing a conference volume of selected papers. We hope that you will join us for this exciting event.
Drs. Matthew J.M. Coomber and Micah D. Kiel
