Amy-Jill Levine, professor of New Testament and Jewish studies at Vanderbilt University, will present, "Seeing Through Different Lenses: How Christians and Jews Read Scripture," as a part of the Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding. The event will take place on Tuesday, Oct. 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Walter Theatre, Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts, on the St. Norbert College campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Levine received her B.A. from Smith College and her M.A. and Ph.D. from Duke University. Through her studies of the interpretation of biblical texts, she has become established as one of today's leading New Testament scholars. Her work focuses on interpreting popular biblical texts from alternative points of view, and has earned her a number of distinctions and honors including honorary doctorates from multiple universities and grants from the Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Council of Learned Societies. In addition, she has held positions of office in the Society of Biblical Literature, the Catholic Biblical Association, and the Association for Jewish Studies.

The Norman and Louis Miller Lecture Series celebrates human dignity and encourages better understanding between people, promoting unity, communication and tolerance among different cultures, religions, ethnicities and traditions.
