Best Articles in BR Named
Thanks to the generous support of the Leopold and Clara M. Fellner Charitable Foundation, through its trustee, Frederick L. Simmons, we are able to honor the best articles in BR for 1994 and 1995.
In evaluating the articles the judges, Burke O. Long of Bowdoin College and Amy-Jill Levine of Vanderbilt University Divinity School, found immediate unanimity. Independently, they not only nominated the same article for the first prize, they also proposed the same two articles for honorable mention. Levine and Long based their selections on the centrality of the subject matter to biblical interpretation, the articles potential for advancing debate on controversial issues in a reasoned manner and the clarity of the presentation.
