The Fall 2021 Meeting will take place at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago on October 23, 2021, at 2:45 p.m.
Theodore Hiebert – McCormick Theological Seminary
Theodore Hiebert writes about biblical views of identity and difference and about biblical perspectives on the environment. The Beginning of Difference, focusing on the book of Genesis, challenges exclusivist cultural interpretations and reveals a text that embraces and celebrates ethnic identities and differences. The Yahwist’s Landscape challenges claims that the Bible privileges humans and separates them from nature and shows how biblical religion is grounded in the natural world. Hiebert was an editor and translator for the Common English Bible, and wrote the notes to Genesis for the CEB Study Bible and the New Interpreter’s Study Bible. He is currently at work on a study of the book of Genesis as migration literature. Hiebert is Francis A. McGaw Professor of Old Testament and Dean of the Faculty Emeritus at McCormick Theological Seminary and lives in Homewood, IL.
