Journal of Theological Interpretation 3, 1 (2009)

The latest issue of the Journal of Theological Interpretation arrived yesterday, and it probably says something very peculiar about me that I read the contents page with a sense of expectancy and excitement…

Daniel C. Timmer
Character Formed in the Crucible: Job’s Relationship with God and Joban Character Ethics

William A. Tooman
Edwards’s Ezekiel: The Interpretation of Ezekiel in the Blank Bible and Notes on Scripture

Douglas S. Earl
The Christian Significance of Deuteronomy 7

Michael D. White
Charles Hodge, Hermeneutics, and the Struggle with Scripture

Kent L. Yinger
Reformation Redivivus: Synergism and the New Perspective

Michael F. Bird
What if Martin Luther Had Read the Dead Sea Scrolls? Historical Particularity and Theological Interpretation in Pauline Theology: Galatians as a Test Case

Matthew M. Bridges
Reunderstanding How to ‘Understand the Scripture’

Hans Madueme
Review Article: Theological Interpretation after Barth

I may post on individual essays as I read them over the next few months.

Meanwhile, the contents page alone bears testimony to how far ‘theological interpretation’ has travelled in a relatively short period of time: the self-consciously theological readings of Old and New Testament texts informed by concerns from cognate disciplines, with a historical-ecclesial awareness (Reformation and post-Reformation traditions particularly prominent in this issue) – all in a peer-reviewed journal from the ‘academy’.
