The Jack and Phyllis Middleton Award for Excellence in Bible and Theology was awarded at our 2019 Co-Sponsored Fall Conference at Northeastern Seminary to Dr. Becky Copeland. Dr. Copeland received the award for her paper entitled “Wells, Springs, and Commodification: Water Rights and Hagar’s Tribulations.” Dr. Copeland’s paper will be featured in an upcoming issue of the Canadian-American Theological Review.
The Jack and Phyllis Middleton Award is given in memory of Jack and Phyllis Middleton, parents of J. Richard Middleton, president of the Canadian Evangelical Theological Association (CETA), 2011- 2014. The award is given annually for the best essay by a theological student or non-tenured faculty at each Fall theology conference of the Canadian-American Theological Association (CATA).
