SBL International Meeting Online Programme Book Now Available

The 2009 SBL International Meeting Online Programme Book is now available.

My paper is scheduled on 3rd July. It is very interesting to note that almost the entire session on Paul and Rome (4 out of 5 papers) is represented by my alma mater, University of Wales, as highlighted below. And I am very pleased to discover that I am slotted in together with my doktorvater and his dear wife in this session as well. Both Kathy's and my book will be released by T&T Clark in May, and we all agreed that there is much for all of us to celebrate in Rome!

Hi Kar Yong,

Very interesting and relevant. Are you going to make it available on your blog or elsewhere after July?

不肖生 Sceptics,
Yours truly have to pay for himself! But I guess I have some magic number and friends in high places!

I am doing the paper for my CV also - makes it looks good :-) haha

Hi SP,
It certainly will be made available, but I am not sure when. It will be part of my 4th book project where I will deal with reading Paul from a cross-cultural perspective.
