The Intersect Project Ph.D. Student Challenge Symposium was designed to engage future teachers, pastors and church leaders in pursuit of a better understanding of the theology of faith, work and economics and to facilitate broader discussion in both the church and the academy on the intersection of these key issues.
The Symposium was held on June 2-3, 2016 on the campus of Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. Students were asked to present papers on topics that interacted with the four major themes of the Oikonomia Network Economic Wisdom project. Ten doctoral students were selected from among the applicants to compete for three cash prizes.
Congratulations to Murray Vasser, Ph.D. candidate at Asbury Theological Seminary, for winning first place with his paper: “Sell Your Possessions: Luke 12:33 and the Greco-Roman Utopian Ideal.” Murray’s paper will be published in the Summer 2017 issue of the Southeastern Theological Review.
Enjoy and learn from the contestants’ submissions.
