HDS Voices

Laura S. Nasrallah

I think that certain sectors of the academy are surprised that religion hasn't died out. Everyone's noticing that religious discourse is actually alive and well, and violently affecting politics. There's a new urgency to learning about and discussing religion. We need to be able to respect the fact that people who have deeply held convictions and practices might speak in terms that don't match ours.
Laura S. Nasrallah, Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity
