Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies Call for Papers

The Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies (JBTS) is a new open-source online journal in the field of biblical and theological studies (viewable at The journal will also be available in print through Wipf & Stock.

Written from an inter-denominational evangelical point of view, the journal is reviewed by an editorial board of faculty that represent several academic institutions throughout the world.

Academic journals are often written by scholars for other scholars. They are technical in nature, assuming a robust knowledge of the field. While this is a necessary and good endeavor, there are few journals that seek to introduce biblical and theological scholarship that is accessible to students in these fields. JBTS seeks to bridge the existing gap by providing high-level original scholarship and research to students. This journal also seeks to model good research and writing, so that students can more confidently engage in the field. In essence, this journal is a collection of professors writing for the sake of their students.

JBTS will provide high-level original scholarship that is written towards students who are proficient in the fields of biblical and theological studies.

We are accepting article submissions for JBTS within the fields of biblical studies, theology, church history, and philosophy.
