Early Career Scholars in the Theological Disciplines

Roundtable Conversation: “The Mixed Legacy of Historical Criticism in Churches of Christ”

When: June 10, 2021, 9:00 am - Thursday

Where: Swang 100

Session 3

Session Abstract

This roundtable brings together senior and early career scholars in a conversation on the legacy of the Churches of Christ’s close alignment with historical-critical method. We will explore how our tradition’s emphasis on historical criticism has both empowered and limited participants’ scholarship, with particular attention to the role a narrow methodology has played in the exclusion of diverse voices and scholarship. We will also consider the implications of a more eclectic approach and curriculum for the future of our universities and churches.
