Great Biblical Scholars Write for Catalyst

Great Biblical Scholars Write for Catalyst January 28, 2010

I found out about a periodical aimed at young theological students called Catalyst.  They offer articles from an evangelical perspective within the United Methodist Church.  The articles are very short and are geared towards the uninitiated student – the most basic information on a subject.  These work well for earnest laypeople or college and seminary students.

When I began to peruse their back issues I was amazed at the number of world renowned biblical scholars they brought on to write pieces (and not all Methodists, as I gather).  Here is a sampling (not all are well-known scholars, but some are certainly excellent topics and overviews).  Check out especially McKnight, Gorman, Watson, and Bauckham.

D. Christopher Spinks on Theological Interpretation of Scripture

Brian Brock on his book Singing the Ethos of God
