Boston University School of Theology, March 18, 2014
Richard Horsley (Professor of New Testament and Emeritus Faculty, U Mass Boston; Ph.D., Harvard) has written or edited over twenty books, including Jesus and the Powers and Covenant Economics. An engaging speaker, he has also been a prime shaper of some of the most important shifts in recent New Testament research, and within the Society of Biblical Literature, he has pushed for major scholarly shifts to study Paul in Political Contexts, Jesus, Paul and Empire, and most recently, Poverty and Economics in the Biblical World.
The talk was sponsored by The Boston Poverty Consortium and Dr. James Walters, and was graciously supported by the Boston University School of Theology. Thanks go especially to Boston University School of Theology, Dean Mary Elizabeth Moore, and to Dean Pamela Lightsey and Daniel Carman for live-streaming and taping the talk, which took place March 18, 2014 in the Oxnam Room of BUSTh.
