Scripture, Hermeneutics and the Middle East

  Sponsors: Rob Dalrymple and Bruce Fisk    Email sponsors

The focus of this study group is on the biblical texts and hermeneutical approaches that inform various theologies of the Land and People of God, with interest in how these theologies shape contemporary Christian responses to Middle East realities and conflicts, with particular concern for Israel and Palestine. For more information, please contact Rob Dalrymple ([email protected]) and Bruce Fisk ([email protected]).
