Early Historical Books (Joshua–Kings)

Focused on the Old Testament historical books that are set in the pre-exilic period, including the so-called deuteronomistic history as well as the book of Ruth.  Emphasis is on historical-cultural and literary-theological approaches to interpretation.  This year we have an open call for papers focused on the intertextual use of Torah in the early historical books. Please email abstract to both Ralph Hawkins (rhawkins@averett.edu) and Kenneth Way (ken.way@biola.edu) by February 28, 2019.
