Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar (SAHS)

The Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar (SAHS) works to facilitate a renewal of biblical interpretation in the academy that will help reopen the Book for our cultures. It does so from an academic, ecumenical, interdisciplinary, communal, and Christian foundation. For further information contact Heath Thomas (heath.thomas@okbu.edu) and see http://www.stgeorgesonline.com/centre/sahs/. The Seminar is a venture of the St. George's Centre for Biblical and Public Theology. The SAHS/SADS/SACS dinner will take place on Saturday at 7:30 pm.
