Two new recent Journals are available for free to online readers.
The latest issue of Themelois has been posted to the Gospel Coalition website, Issue 38.1 features an excellent article by Eric Ortland “The Pastoral Implications of Wise and Foolish Speech in the Book of Proverbs.” This issue has a large number of book reviews, including my review of Jonathan T. Pennington, Reading the Gospels Wisely: A Narrative and Theological Introduction (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2012). The Gospel Coalition allows you to download a PDF of Themelios or you can read it online. An interesting feature for the online reader is the ability to make comments directly on the article as if the journal were a blog.
The Journal for the Evangelical Study of the Old Testament 2.1 (2013) has several interesting articles, including Andrew E. Steinmann on the Song of Solomon (“Gazelles, Does, and Flames: (De)Limiting Love in Song of Songs”), John G. Ferch, “The Story of Torah: The Role of Narrative in Leviticus’s Legal Discourse” and Spencer L. Allen, “An Examination of Northwest Semitic Divine Names and the Bet-locative.” There are 23 book reviews, including my own review of Pentateuchal Traditions in the Late Second Temple Period: Proceedings of the International Workshop in Tokyo, August 28–31, 2007, edited by Akio Moruya and Gohei Hata (Leiden: Brill, 2012). The journal is available for free in PDF format. You can download it or read it online, but there is no feedback option for online readers. Printed copies will be available through Wipf & Stock.
