Biblical scholars to gather at St Andrews

The School of Divinity is pleased to announce that the fourth St Andrews conference on Scripture and
 Christian Theology will be held on 10-13 July on the New Testament book of Galatians. Key topics will include how Saint Paul believed being Christian changed lifestyle and attitudes to, for example, gender, socio-economic class or other ways of faith and how radically different was the religion of Jesus and his followers from that of the 'former people' in Israel? Keynote speakers include Richard Hays, George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testaments at Duke Divinity School in North Carolina; N T Wright, Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins, University of St Andrews; and Oliver O’Donovan, Professor of Christian Ethics and Practical Theology at the University of Edinburgh.
