Teaching the Bible with Technology session


At the Annual Meeting this fall, the SBL unit Global Education and Research Technology will sponsor a session with Academic Teaching and Biblical Studies on "Teaching the Bible with Technology. I am inordinately excited about this session, and very pleased to be part of the program. They have released the schedule for the session, and it's a doozy.

I will speak for a few minutes about how I use Accordance and BibleGateway to explore with students the underlying theoretical and hemeneutical choices in different Bible versions.
