Throughout history and especially in religious texts, the concept of the "heavenly book" has recurred. Dr. Leslie Baynes, associate professor of religious studies at Missouri State University, researched this theme and published "The Heavenly Book Motif in Judeo-Christian Apocalypses, 200 BCE-200 CE."
Missouri State University will host the Collaborative Diversity Conference: Engaging 21st Century Paradigms of Inclusion April 18-19 in the Plaster Student Union. Registration for the conference ends March 31, and leaders at Missouri State encourage managers, human resources professionals, program developers, outreach coordinators, community members and faculty, staff and students to attend this great opportunity.
Dr. Tim Wise will be the keynote speaker on April 18, from 7:30-9 p.m. in the PSU Theater. This presentation is free and open to the public.
