Journal of Theological Interpretation

The Journal of Theological Interpretation is a new journal, apparently published by Eisenbrauns.

This is the overall description, taken from the Eisenbraun’s website:

Why a New Theological Journal?

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.

We invite contributions in areas such as:

  • theological exegesis of selected biblical texts
  • concerns of theological method and the role of Scripture in theology and ethics
  • the history of reception or history of interpretation of biblical texts
  • major review essays interacting with key books, contemporary or classical
  • hermeneutical challenges in theological exegesis
