Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


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.

Engage with cutting-edge theological exegesis of biblical texts, concerns of theological method, the role of Scripture in theology and ethics, and the history of reception and interpretation of biblical texts. This journal gives the scholar both original research and major review essays interacting with key contemporary and classical books, and opens insights into current hermeneutical challenges in theological exegesis.
