In Memory of Walter Wink

Room: W176b – McCormick Place

This is a special joint session with the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section (SBL) and the Scriptural/Contextual Ethics Group (AAR). We gather to honor the legacy of Walter Wink (1935-2012), powerful ponderer of the Powers. He taught us to read, think, question, protest, love, imagine, play, and (with his wife June) dance. The New York Times called him “an influential liberal theologian”; one website labeled him “a false prophet.” Most simply knew him as a “Human Being.”

Panelists:

  • J. Harold Ellens, University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
  • Wayne G. Rollins, Hartford Seminary
  • D. Andrew Kille, BibleWorkbench
  • David Gushee, Mercer University
  • Michael Willett Newheart, Howard University
