Amy-Jill Levine in Auckland
I've never met Amy-Jill Levine, but she has a fine reputation as a New Testament scholar and I've listened to the lecture Phil Wilson posted
to his Teaching the Kingdom
site. As well as being an Orthodox Jewish feminist New Testament scholar (already an intriguing combination) she is an engaging and humorous presenter.
If you live in, or within reach of, Auckland this is one biblical studies lecture you should NOT miss!
