Fall 2020 Midwestern Journal of Theology

Midwestern Seminary released its Fall 2020 issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology on December 10, featuring works by several of the school’s faculty as well as academics from the wider Baptist community.

The fall edition addresses theological topics ranging from the use of the Psalms in devotional practice, the Bible’s description of ethnic harmony, Charles Spurgeon’s view of the role of the church in the stand for orthodoxy, and the significance of authorial answers for the interpretation and meaning of Deuteronomy.

President Jason Allen said of the Journal’s recently-released edition, “Dr. Michael McMullen continues to deliver an encouraging and edifying group of academic works that portend to strengthen the Church and the academy in varying degrees. This issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology will be helpful to many as it explores pertinent issues related to Scripture and its application within the church and culture at large.”
