Journal of Theological Interpretation, vol. 5

Format: Digital


Critical biblical scholarship as developed and defined since the mid-eighteenth century has played a significant and welcome role in pressing us to take biblical texts seriously on their own terms and diverse contexts. With the postmodern turn, additional questions have surfaced—including the theological and ecclesial location of biblical interpretation, the significance of canon and creed for biblical hermeneutics, the historical reception of biblical texts, and other more pointedly theological interests. How might we engage interpretively with the Christian Scriptures so as to hear and attend to God’s voice? The Journal of Theological Interpretation aims to serve these agendas.

The Logos edition of these theological journals speeds up your research and sermon preparation. Search across volumes of recent scholarship in theological interpretation studies. Find every article that mentions the topic or Scripture passage you’re preaching on or researching. Trace the development of key theological themes by accessing the latest scholarship—like never before.
