Ok, this is getting crazy! First, yes I am patently aware I am only allowed to do two papers. To be honest, I never expected all 3 to be accepted. But, news came today from Konrad Schmid that my paper on Gen 32-33 (which I presented at the regional meeting two weeks ago; see abstract HERE) was accepted for the Pentateuch program unit. I am quite pleased, and surprised . . . not because of the quality of my paper but because methodologically it is not about Pentateuchal composition.
I have yet to make my final decision as to which two I will do; there is no question that I will present in the Theology of the Hebrew Scriptures section. At present I am strongly leaning toward withdrawing the Isaiah paper and presenting in the Pentateuch section. That is a fine, and important, group of folk with whom I would be fortunate to be involved.
How about others? Have you had papers accepted? If so, what is the title, and what unit?
