Early Historical Books (Joshua-Kings)

Historical-cultural and literary-theological exploration of 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. This year we will have invited papers focused on the Israelite settlement through the lenses of the early historical books. For further information please contact Ralph Hawkins (rhawkins@averett.edu) and Kenneth Way (ken.way@biola.edu).
