Biblical Interpretation

A Journal of Contemporary Approaches

Editor-in-Chief: Tat-siong Benny Liew
This innovative and highly acclaimed journal publishes articles on various aspects of critical biblical scholarship in a complex global context. The journal provides a medium for the development and exercise of a whole range of current interpretive trajectories, as well as deliberation and appraisal of methodological foci and resources. Alongside individual essays on various subjects submitted by authors, the journal welcomes proposals for special issues that focus on particular emergent themes and analytical trends.

Over the past two decades, Biblical Interpretation has provided a professional forum for pushing the disciplinary boundaries of biblical studies: not only in terms of what biblical texts mean, but also what questions to ask of biblical texts, as well as what resources to use in reading biblical literature. The journal has thus the distinction of serving as a site for theoretical reflection and methodological experimentation.

Biblical Interpretation accepts submission for review on a continuous basis.

To submit a proposal for a special issue, please contact the Executive Editor Tat-siong Benny Liew, bliew@holycross.edu
Suggestions for Special Issues could be ´Songs of Praise´ / The Bible and Pop Music BI XIX - 2 or ´Jesus in Cultural Complexity BI XVIII / 4-5
