The Bible in the Public Square Conference

The Bible in the Public Square conference is now well underway here at Duke and so far it has been an excellent event, with a lively and very stimulating paper last night by Jacques Berlinerblau on the Bible and American presidential politics, continuing this morning with four presentations on the intersection between the Bible and American popular culture by Adele Reinhartz, David Stowe, David Morgan and RubĂ©n R. Dupertuis.  These were all excellent but given my interest in the Bible and film, I particularly enjoyed Adele Reinhartz's presentation about the Cecil B. DeMille Ten Commandments.  

I will continue to live tweet the event with the hashtag #biblepublicsquare.  So far, not many others joining in on that one though the events have been well attended.

If you weren't aware, you can catch the live stream of the conference on UStream.  Just navigate your way to Watch the conference live! on the site's main page.

Did Berlinerblau go off his rocker against atheists again?
