For immediate release
Nov. 3, 2004

Dr. David Moessner, professor of biblical theology at the University of Dubuque Seminary, will give the eighteenth annual Carmichael-Walling Lectures at ACU on November 18.  The Carmichael-Waling lectureship is designed to present current scholarship in New Testament studies.

The topic for Moessner's lectures is "Reading with the Ancients: Contemporary Gospel Interpretation in the Light of Hellenistic Narrative Hermeneutics."  He will speak at 4 p.m. on "Losing One's Life: God's Saving Plan for the World," and again at 7:30 p.m. on "Gaining One's Life: The Church's Witness to the End of the Earth." The lectures will be in Room 130 of the Biblical Studies Building.

Moessner, a specialist in the study of the Gospels within the context of ancient Judaism, has also taught at Yale University Divinity School and Columbia Theological Seminary. His books include Lord of the Banquet: A Literary and Theological Investigation of the Lukan Travel Narrative, Jesus and the Heritage of Israel: Luke's Narrative Claim upon Israel's Legacy, and Reexamining Paul's Letters: The History of the Pauline Correspondence.

For more than a decade, some of the world’s leading scholars have come to ACU to deliver the Carmichael-Walling Lectures, including Tjitze Baarda (University of Amsterdam), Bruce Metzger (Princeton Theological Seminary), Luke Timothy Johnson (Emory University), James VanderKam (Notre Dame) and David Parker (Birmingham, England).

The lectures are free and open to the public. No reservations are required.  For more information contact Dr. James Thompson, associate dean, ACU Graduate School of Theology, at 325-674-3730.
