The New Journal EARLY CHRISTIANITY’s Show-Stopping First Issue

The new Mohr Siebeck journal, Early Christianity, has their inaugural issue planned and it will come out in April, 2010.  The journal attempts to bridge the scholarly gap between scholars of NT and scholars of early Christian history in the second and third century (and on?).

Articles in their first issue are broken down into three main topics: New Directions in Pauline Theology, New Discoveries, and New Projects.    See below some great ideas for book reviews and world-class reviewers under “New Books”.  I am particularly interested in hearing what Francis Watson has to say about Campbell’s volume!


Michael Wolter; Die Entwicklung des paulinischen Christentums von einer Bekehrungsreligion zu einer Traditionsreligion
Judith M. Lieu; “As much my apostle as Christ is mine”: The dispute over Paul between Tertullian and Marcion
Matthias Konradt; Die Christonomie der Freiheit. Zu Paulus’ Entfaltung seines ethischen Ansatzes in Gal 5,13-6,10
Jonathan A. Linebaugh Debating Diagonal Δικαιοσύνη: The Epistle of Enoch and Paul in Theological Conversation

The last one here, Jonathan Linebaugh, is a doctoral student at Durham University – a bright student whose research is very impressive.  His article was originally a paper given at the British New Testament conference – very well received from what I hear.
