Midwestern Journal of Theology’s Spring 2019 Issue Explores John’s Gospel, #MeToo, C.S. Lewis, and Charles Spurgeon

The Gospel of John, the #MeToo Movement, a commonality between C.S. Lewis and T.S. Eliot, the role of the Holy Spirit and Charles Spurgeon are among the topics of the Midwestern Journal of Theology’s Spring 2019 issue.

Jason Allen, president of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, said the essays in the journal, released May 1, provide “truthful insight and thoughtful guidance amidst a world that bends at the whims of the culture.”

MJT editor Michael McMullen, who also serves as professor of church history, said Midwestern is grateful for contributions from not only the seminary’s faculty and adjunct faculty “but to have friends from around the SBC contributing thought-provoking articles for the edification of our readership.”

The MJT’s lead article on the Gospel of John is derived from February’s For the Church Workshop lectures by Andreas J. Köstenberger, MBTS research professor of New Testament and biblical theology. McMullen described Köstenberger’s lectures as both scholarly and helpful in learning about John’s Gospel, examining significant aspects of the early chapters of the book, including authorship, the prologue and the Cana Cycle.

An essay on the #MeToo Movement by Katie McCoy is titled, “What’s Missing from #MeToo: How the Christian Worldview Defends a Woman’s Worth.” McCoy, assistant professor of theology in women’s studies at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary’s Scarborough College, notes that what is missing from the present-day movement is the influence of the redeemed, those who hold to a worldview that truly values a woman’s worth.
