We are happy to finally allow you to see the new home for the Evangelical Theological Society.

The Evangelical Theological Society is a professional academic society of biblical and theological scholars, pastors, and students. We serve Jesus Christ and his church by fostering conservative, biblical scholarship. We seek to accomplish this goal through our Annual Meeting, regional meetings, and publications such as our Journal. Our meetings are open to the public and our publications are available for purchase. Older volumes of the Journal are made available freely through our online archive.

JBTS Call for Papers

Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies

JBTS Call for Papers 9.1 Ecclesiology The Journal of Biblical and Theological Studies, a peer-reviewed, open access journal, invites scholarly submissions for a forthcoming issue on Ecclesiology. JBTS is an interdenominational, broadly evangelical journal that seeks to provide high-level scholarship to both scholars and students. In this special issue, we seek a broad engagement with the Doctrine of the Church. Potential topics can range from the church’s identity, its mission and/or how the church relates to the state and society, its sacraments, its unity and diversity, catholicity, ecumenism, or practical concerns that today’s church encounters. For inquires, contributors may reach out to justin.mclendon@gcu.edu. Deadline for submission is 12/1/2023. Article guidelines can be found here.

Are You an ETS Member and Not Receiving Emails?

Dear Members, If you have not received ETS emails over the past weeks, months, even years, you may have an old (or bad) email address on file, or you may have unsubscribed from an email that came from ETS in the past. Whether intentional or not, that would prevent you from receiving announcements about paper proposals in the spring, conference registration and information (including special events), new books and specials from publishers, and any other email that ETS sends out.

Change of address

ETS Members (especially student members): if your address changes after the semester or school year, please update your account with a new address. Access your account here: https://www.etsjets.org/myaccount_status If you are not sure how to do that, contact us at member-care@etsjets.org
