New members, old members, and interested explorers, join us in Salt Lake City to uncover ancient wisdom and recent scholarly pearls as we seek to confront Christian nationalism.
Westar is scholarship in public for the public, and there is no greater public issue today than the rise of White Christian nationalism in the USA and beyond. We need to examine this issue, learn how it is unrelated to the historical Jesus and Paul, and how it portends a cultural crisis, not a promise, both for our collective future and the future of our planet.
Join us for an important three days in May. Featured speakers Drs. Liz Theoharis and John Dominic Crossan will center this gathering filled with learning opportunities and friendships.
*A Call for papers has been issued for Friday and Saturday sessions (the topics in bold). There is no telling where the scholarship will lead!
We're thrilled to announce a special pop-up gathering just for our esteemed members featuring none other than the renowned scholar, John Dominic Crossan, in celebration of his 90th birthday!
