Colloquium On Violence & Religion



COV&R-Bulletin No. 7 (Oct. 1994)

A Note from the Editor

In this issue of the Bulletin, you will find reports from our annual meeting in Wiesbaden. We invite you to contact the authors mentioned in the reports for a copy of their papers for further discussion. The executive secretary of COV&R or the editorial office of the Bulletin will provide you with addresses.

In the March 1994 issue of the Bulletin we published two abstracts by Charles Mabee and Jim Williams on the Suffering Servant. We will continue this discussion in this issue of the Bulletin. Sandor Goodhart sent us an abstract of his paper on Isaiah 52-53 that he delivered at our Washington meeting in November 1993. His abstract questions the theory of the uniqueness of Christianity from a Girardian point of view. We invited two Catholic theologians from Austria who are familiar with Girard's theory to respond to Sandor's question. This Jewish-Christian dialogue in the Bulletin should stimulate our dialog on this topic at our fall meeting in Chicago.

Let me raise also some administrative matters:

(1) We ask you to send us your contributions to the Bulletin on a floppy disk or by e-mail. It greatly simplifies the publication of the Bulletin.

(2) If you would like to write a book review for the Bulletin please contact the editorial office or James G. Williams, the executive secretary. The length of a review should be between 600 and 1000 words. Longer reviews (at most 2000 words) will only be published in special circumstances.

(3) The length of an abstract should be between 100 and 300 words.

(4) Please find out if you have paid your annual dues. You will find the date of your last payment at the top of your mailing label. The regular membership fee is $30.00.
