A special issue of Religions (ISSN 2077-1444).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 February 2019).
A printed edition of this Special Issue is available here.
Interests: Methods in New Testament study; the historical Jesus; Pauline theology; Christianity and other religions
This is a call for expressions of interest in contributing to a special issue on current New Testament study for the peer-reviewed electronic journal, Religions.
This issue will focus on the formal methods used to interpret the New Testament today. In line with the multiplicity of methods for interpretation of texts in the humanities in general, New Testament study has never before seen so many different methods. This situation poses both challenges and opportunities for researchers and students alike.
This issue will contain between twelve and fifteen contributions by established scholars and by younger scholars who have recently demonstrated their expertise in a certain method. These articles will reflect global perspectives on biblical interpretation. I expect that this issue will serve to inform both students and professors about some of the latest trends in methodology. Because Religions is a peer-reviewed open-access journal with a high rate of citation, you can be assured of rigorous academic quality, free access, and international exposure for your contribution.
Religions has been funded by the Knowledge Unlatched initiative, resulting in no direct charge to authors. For more information, see https://www.mdpi.com/journal/religions/apc .
Thank you for your interest in this topic, and best wishes in your academic work.
Prof. Dr. Robert E. Van Voorst
