"A Word is Alive and Active" (Hebr. 4:12): Biblical Studies, West and East: Approaches, Challenges and Prospects / ed. by Galyna Tesliuk. Lviv: UCU Press, 2017. 336 p. (Series “Kyivan Christianity", vol. 8).
This volume contains selected proceedings of the International Biblical Conference “Biblical Studies, West and East: Trends, Challenges and Prospects”, 19‑20 September 2013, hosted by the Faculty of Theology of the Ukrainian Catholic University. Over the past years many young Ukrainian theologians have obtained their academic degrees from world class universities. International in scope, the conference seeked to stimulate scholarly enquiry, constructive dialogue and interactions between and among different Christian traditions with a special interest in the current condition and future prospects of Biblical scholarship in ecumenical perspective. It was our aim that young academics and senior scholars whether from the leading centers of Biblical studies or from emerging schools had a chance to respond to their colleagues’ work in a professional and academic setting. As Ukraine stands at the crossroads of Eastern (Orthodox) and Western (Catholic and Protestant) theological worlds, the conference was particularly open to insights that reflect Ukraine’s “nexus” position in Biblical Studies between Eastern and Western Christian traditions.
