2020 Conference Rescheduled to 2021
12th Annual Spirituality Conference
Amy-Jill Levine, Ph.D.
Saturday, October 23, 2021
After much thought and prayer, we have decided that we will not hold a Spirituality Conference this year. Fortunately, Dr. Amy-Jill Levine graciously worked with us to reschedule her presentation next year. Mark your calendar now for October 23, 2021!
Dr. Levine is the University Professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies in the Divinity School and College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University.
A self-described "Yankee Jewish feminist who teaches in a predominantly Protestant divinity school in the buckle of the Bible Belt," Levine "combines historical-critical rigor, literary-critical sensitivity, and a frequent dash of humor with a commitment to eliminating antisemitic, sexist, and homophobic theologies."
Her books include The Misunderstood Jew: The Church and the Scandal of the Jewish Jesus; Short Stories by Jesus: The Enigmatic Parables of a Controversial Rabbi; and The Meaning of the Bible: What the Jewish Scriptures and the Christian Old Testament Can Teach Us (with Douglas Knight). Visit the Cathedral Book Store to peruse these and other books by Dr. Levine.
