Scholar-Activist Encounter: Weldon Nisly and Tom Boomershine

December 17, 2020 | 19:30 ET

in collaboration with the Center & Library for the Bible and Social Justice, New York

How do activism and scholarship contribute to our understanding of Scripture in the world today?
In this session, CPTer and lifelong peace activist, Weldon Nisly and biblical scholar Tom Boomershine will discuss their commitment to understand and respond to the Gospel’s call to peacemaking — within the academy, within Christian community, and in conflict zones around the world. They will focus on the struggle of the Kurds in Northern Iraq targeted by Turkey’s military in the context of the Iraq war, as well as the Palestinian struggle in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

This event is part of the Center & Library for the Bible and Social Justice’s Scholar-Activist Encounter series, and is additionally co-sponsored by the Network for Biblical Storytellers International.

CPT Action is an initiative of Community Peacemaker Teams inviting activists, advocates and allies to take action for peace.
