New Issue of JSPL (2.1, 2012)

It is an honor for me to serve as associate editor for the Journal for the Study of Paul and His Letters (with Mike Bird as head honcho) and I am enjoying my experience very much.  We have a great (ever expanding) editorial board – check it out. The 2.1 issue recently came out and I wanted to make mention of it.

It is on the short end with only four articles. This is not ideal, but I came to learn quickly that this kind of business is unpredictable. We have a good number of articles coming down the pipeline, but a lot of it is a matter of timing (what is ready and what is not). In any case, many NT folks will be excited to see that N.T. Wright offers the first article called “Rom 2:17-3:7: A Hidden Clue to the Meaning of Romans?” When I first read the title, I thought, since I read Wright’s commentary, what more could I really learn about Romans? Put another way, does he have anything “new” to say on Romans?

Well, I was very glad that I had the patience to sit and read this article. It is fascinating and inspiring. I encourage you to take a look.

In addition to Wright’s piece, we have a contribution by William Walker on Romans 8 as well as a treatment of 2 Corinthians 10:5 by Michael Kibbe.

Finally, I decided to take a stab at assessing commentaries written in 2011 and some from 2012. I know what you are wondering – did he get all those commentaries for free? Sadly, no. Several of them I checked out from the library.
