Old Testament Difficulties: Violence and Trauma

Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 12:00PM - 12:45 PM (Pacific Time)

This event has now ended. Please view this page to see all our upcoming events.


During this year's Summer Programs, join us each Wednesday for a roundtable conversation featuring members of our world-class summer faculty. The professors and topics are different each week, so there’s always something new to explore. 

This week, Old Testament scholars Lissa Wray Beal and Matt Lynch will discuss Old Testament difficulties such as violence and trauma. Join us at noon in Room 100, and feel free to bring your lunch—and your questions.
