The 2018 Festschrift issue of Perspectives in Religious Studies has been published in honor of Mitchell G. Reddish, the O. L. Walker Professor of Christian Studies and Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Stetson University, DeLand, Florida. The issue, entitled “Unveiling Revelation and Jesus of Nazareth: Essays in Honor of Mitchell Reddish,” was edited by Jaime Clark-Soles. After a brief biographical sketch of Reddish by department colleague Kandy Queen-Sutherland, eight articles focusing on different aspects of the book of Revelation follow. The authors contributing these studies are M. Eugene Boring, Richard B. Vinson, Jerry L. Sumney, David L. Barr, Tina Pippin, R. Scott Nash, and Greg Carey. The final article is an archaeologically-focused examination of the historical Jesus and the historical Galilee by R. Alan Culpepper. The issues concludes with a select bibliography of Reddish’s publications.
The paper copies should be shipping to NABPR members soon. Non-members or those who want a special copy Mikeal Parsons,Department of Religion, Baylor University, One Bear Place #97284, Waco, TX 76798 ().

Greetings from the Executive Secretary-Treasurer
Welcome to the Annual May Meeting of NABPR.
Save the date for 2019: Campbell University School of Law has committed to host our meeting on May 20 – 22, 2019. The 2019 meeting will be a joint meeting with the Baptist History and Heritage Society.
The November meeting in Boston was successful. Mark your calendar for November 17. Dr. Nancy Ammerman did a wonderful job as our plenary speaker. We plan to keep the Saturday morning tradition alive in Denver.
Many thanks go to Doug Weaver, our President, and the Gardner-Webb University faculty and staff who have worked hard to bring about another successful meeting. The online registration and payment portal made the logistics much easier.
I look forward to seeing you in Boiling Springs.
Update: There has been a venue change for SECSOR. The meeting will now be taking place at: Atlanta Marriott Buckhead Hotel and Conference Center.
