In Memory of Walter Wink

Leave a comment

In addition to our regular sessions, the Psychology and Biblical Studies Section (SBL) is co-sponsoring a special session with the Scriptural/Contextual Ethics Group (AAR) to remember Walter Wink.

In Memory of Walter Wink

S17-225. Saturday, November 17, 1:00 – 3:00 pm
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
