Fall 2021 Midwestern Journal of Theology

Midwestern Seminary released its Fall 2021 issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology on Dec 3, featuring assorted works from members of the school’s faculty.

The fall edition includes a brief note on the ongoing scholarly work at Midwestern Seminary’s Spurgeon Library and articles addressing theological topics ranging from a biblical theology of global missions, the Apostle Paul’s approach to preaching, salvation and the impeccability of Christ, Christ “becoming poor,” and the interpretive structure of Romans 6:1-14.

The issue’s penultimate article, written by Samuel Parkison, assistant professor of Christian theology at Midwestern Seminary, offers a theological meditation on the “riches” and “poverty” of 2 Corinthians 8:9. In the article, Parkison argues that in becoming “poor,” Jesus Christ suffered no loss of his eternal richness.

President Jason Allen said of the Journal’s recently-released edition, “This issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology will benefit many within the theological academy and the church more broadly. Dr. Michael McMullen has done an outstanding job of curating the Fall 2021 issue, and we could not be more thrilled for its publication.”
