    Hello all!

    I really just discovered the beauty of scholarly theological journals, as it relates to introducing me to research and books on specific theological topics to dive deeper into.

    What journals would you suggest, and what have you profited from?

    My top two are Puritan Reformed Journal and The Confessional Presbyterian (even though I'm a confessional Baptist). :)

    The Confessional Presbyterian, Puritan Reformed Journal, Westminster Theological Journal, Mid-America Journal of Theology. Calvin Theological Journal also occasionally publishes something useful, but I wouldn't subscribe to it.

    These.

    It depends what you are researching: OT studies, NT studies, theology, and so on. It also depends on what your focus is. Are you wanting broader viewpoints or strictly reformed (as suggested above)?

    Also, I would add Journal for the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies (JIRBS) to the list of good reformed journals.

    It is worth subscribing to the Davenant Institute's Ad Fontes. It often has good translation work as well as articles that are of reasonably broad interest.

    My list is the same as Wes's, except that I would also add Unio Cum Christo.

    *cough* he just published in it *cough*
    :p
    Just kidding. I did the same by mentioning JIRBS.

    I'm in Biblical Studies (N.T.) (Ph.D. cand) and find much use from:

    Journal for the Study of the New Testament (SAGE)
    Journal of Biblical Literature (JSTOR)
    Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society
    Bulletin for Biblical Research (Eisenbrauns)
    Tyndale Bulletin (Tyndale House Cambridge)

    Another one of us! As they say in the South, "Bless your heart."

    Don't forget New Testament Studies and Neotestamentica. And I do not believe JBL is published by JSTOR. You may access it via JSTOR, but it I think it is published by SBL.

    BTW, what and where are you studying?

    Yes two fine additions. Correct, JBL is published by the Society for Biblical Literature, I would have done well to clarify.

    I'm in Lukan studies, how about you?
     
  12. Timotheos

    Timotheos Puritan Board Freshman

    My studies are quite broad, and that is the nature of the program I'm in at Capital Seminary and Grad School. I'm actually getting an article in PRJ this summer on Ps 2. But I teach NT and Greek.

    Where are you studying?

    NT scholars have to consider Novum Testamentum and Zeitschrift for Neu-Testamentliche Wissenschaft as well.

    Then there's also FilologĂ­a Neotestamentaria.

    Plus, many other journals are for both OT and NT studies that you will find top tier (too many to list, here are some).
