Explorations in Theology and Apocalyptic

While there is much to lament about the fact that AAR is no longer meeting conterminously with SBL, there is still a lot of good stuff to look forward to for those who will be attending.Personally, I think that the highlight of the conference will be the twoo sessions on “Explorations in Theology and Apocalyptic.” Here is the list of presenters and meetings for those who are interested. I’d advise anyone coming to AAR next month to make sure to attend these sessions.

    I wish I could make it. Why are you reading Ben’s paper? Can he not make it?

    Just so you know Halden, Josh Davis will not be making it to the AAR; I am reading a paper in his stead for that panel.

    We’re all actually just fabrications of an apocalyptic super computer.

    Just to avoid confusion: David Belcher is reading his own paper; he is not ghosting for Josh Davis.

    Just make sure you defend Ben’s paper as if it was your own. And you must do it in an Aussie accent.
