The Bible Geography Specialty Group had an excellent year. We received from a member a $3,000 gift to enrich the Amy Mather Student award stipend and enhance the BGSG annual meeting session, and we received a renewed pledge to fund the publication of a new Geography of the Bible book. We will seek chapter contributions from BGSG members, early next year. The Washington, D.C. annual meeting session and panel were enhanced by a stipend from the AAG to invite the Rev./Dr. Matthew Sleeman from London, England to present.
