Dr Garrick Allen wins 2018 SBL Achtemeier Award for New Testament Scholarship

Congratulations to Dr Garrick Allen, Lecturer in New Testament, who has won the Society of Biblical Literature's 2018 Paul J. Achtemeier Award for New Testament Scholarship for his paper entitled, “Monks, Manuscripts, Muhammad, and Digital Editions of the New Testament.” The goal of the Achtemeier Award is to stimulate the finest and most penetrating work in New Testament studies and to foster the future of biblical scholarship. The award is given to a member who has completed her/his doctorate within the last ten years. Papers for this award are evaluated on the basis of three categories: (1) Persuasive thesis that engages the New Testament and demonstrates quality of scholarship and significance in the field, (2) Clarity of expression and thought, and (3) Originality and creativity.

Dr Allen will present his paper at a special session held at the Society of Biblical Literature's annual meeting held in Denver, Colorado, in November 2018.
