Seminary Journal Out

Cultural Encounters: A Journal for the Theology of Culture Volume 7, Issue 1 is now available. Put out by The Institute for the Theology of Culture: New Wine, New Wineskins, it is the academic journal of Multnomah Biblical Seminary.

Palestinians Considered

This issue of the journal addresses the conflict between the modern state of Israel and the Palestinian community. The Evangelical tradition, in which our institution is situated, has often favored the state of Israel over the Palestinians while remaining generally inattentive to Palestinian people’s concerns — Christian and Muslim Palestinians alike.

Reconciliation and Peace

All sides in the conflict are responsible for the current state of affairs in one way or another. In order to have reconciliation and peace, it is important that all pertinent voices are represented. To that end, Cultural Encounters has tried to engage as many representatives as possible in the space available.
