Past Events


July 26, 2022 This was a virtual event featuring the editors and authors of the newly released book, The Biblical World of Gender: The Daily Lives of Ancient Women and Men. Recent discussions of “biblical womanhood and manhood” tend to reflect our current Western concepts of masculinity and femininity, and less so the lived world of the biblical authors. This book fills the gap in this discussion by specifically exploring gender in the Bible and in the daily lives of ancient Hebrews.

March 2, 2022 Dr. Matthew Kaemingk of Fuller Seminary and author of Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear gave a talk to discuss policies concerning Muslim immigration, and whether Scripture can offer guidance. It was co-sponsored by the Center for Hebraic Thought and the Institute on Democracy and Religion.


June 3, 2021 Dr. Dru Johnson launched his new book, Biblical Philosophy: A Hebraic Approach to the Old and New Testaments, at The Philos Project office and discussed the importance of Hebraic thought with fellow panelists: Robert Nicholson, President and Founder of The Philos Project; Jesse Rojo, Hispanic Affairs Director; and Dr. David E. Jackson, Associate Director of African American Affairs. [event recording]
