    Dr. Stephen L Cook: Catherine N. McBurney Professor of Old Testament at Virginia Theological Seminary.




    Dr. Deborah Sokolove, Professor Emeritus, former Director of the Henry Luce III Center for the Arts and Religion, Wesley Theological Seminary.

    Panel Moderator:


    Dr. Denise Dombkowski Hopkins: Woodrow W. and Mildred B. Miller Professor of Biblical Theology, Wesley Theological Seminary.
