Spring 2021 Midwestern Journal of Theology

Midwestern Seminary released its Spring 2021 issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology on May 5, featuring works by members of the school’s faculty and scholars from the broader evangelical community.

The spring edition addresses theological topics ranging from defining biblical theology, reflections on the Third Day and the resurrection of Christ, the Trinitarian thought of Matthew Henry, a careful study of Jesus Christ in the ‘Chinese Enlightenment,’ the life and work of John Newton, reflections on the American Baptist Seminary as the SBC’s “civil rights hub,” and the heart of Charles H. Spurgeon for rural preachers and ministries. The issue’s penultimate article, written by Greg Scharf, professor emeritus of homiletics and pastoral theology at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, offers an assessment of the biblical theme of ‘the fear of the Lord’ and its connection as an antidote to “homiletical idolatry.”

President Jason Allen said of the Journal’s recently-released edition, “Dr. Michael McMullen has once again assembled a collection of thoughtful, challenging essays from a wide range of gifted scholars. This issue of the Midwestern Journal of Theology will benefit many within the theological academy and the church more broadly.”
