JSNT Latest–And Free Access

Since I know you would all be disappointed if I got out of the shameless self-promotion business, I hereby list the contents of the latest Journal for the Study of the New Testament.

I also recall for you that for the next few weeks you can get free access to Sage Journals online, which includes JSNT.

My article on Romans 11 helps us see how Paul expresses a consistent expectation for Israel’s salvation in Romans 11: it is going to come about through the mission to the Gentiles.

Sage Journals: Free Access

A few folks have drawn attention to Sage Journals’ offer of free online access to their collection for about the next six weeks. You can register here.

But why o why would you want to do such a thing?

For the best reasons of all, of course…

After registering, you can then have what you’ve always most wanted: nice words from Peter Oakes about my book, Unlocking Romans: Resurrection and the Justification of God.

There’s also a nice summary / short critique of the book by Matthew Bates at Notre Dame. His review was interesting in that he seemed to want to say a good deal more (BTB reviews are notoriously short) and it makes me want to respond to some of his questions. Maybe that’s the best kind?

And last, but definitely not least, my essay, “Why Does the Deliverer Come ΕΚ ΣΙΩΝ (Rom 11.26)?” is in the September issue of JSNT and should therefore be available soon.


At the Wheaton Theology Conference, N. T. Wright mentioned how much harder it is to get a PhD in New Testament if you’re an ENFP than if you’re an ISTJ.

In case you were wondering about the pathologies lying behind Storied Theology, here you go:

Since everyone else and their mom is posting where they’ll be presenting during SBL, courtesy of the online program, far be it from me to refrain!

The Power of Story

It must be quote day. This one from an author who seems to speak for me almost as often as not:

“As human beings, we cannot check the power of a story to determine the lives of those who participate in a particular, defining narrative. What we can do, however, is return repeatedly to our story. We can rehearse it in the words spoken in our communities. We can illustrate it in the giving of the bread which is Christ’s self-given body and the wine which is his self-given blood. We can symbolize it in the cross. And we can beckon one another into it by creating communities defined by self-giving acts of love.” – J. R. Daniel Kirk, Jesus Have I Loved, But Paul…? (Grand Rapids: Baker Academic, forthcoming [2011, Lord willin’ and the creek don’t rise])
