The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society

The Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society commenced publication in 1958 as the Bulletin of the Evangelical Theological Society. The first issue was just 20 pages in length and contained only one article: "The Infallibility of Scripture and Evangelical Progress," by Ned B. Stonehouse (Westminster Theological Seminary). This article was Stonehouse’s presidential address at the society’s annual meeting, when only 47 persons were in attendance.


From that small beginning, under the editorship of Steven Barabas (Wheaton College), the journal has grown remarkably in size, and the contributions are recognized worldwide for their penetrating scholarship and insightful handling of the Scriptures. BETS became JETS in 1969 with volume 12. When JETS celebrated its 25th anniversary in 1982 under the editorship of Ronald Youngblood, each issue was 128 pages in length. In 2007, the readers of JETS received four handsome, gold-colored issues for the 50th anniversary volume, each of which contains 224 pages of astute refereed articles and scholarly reviews. Dr. Dorian Coover-Cox (Dallas Theological Seminary) now serves as the editor.

Our search engine allows researchers to find items of interest quickly and easily. More than 4,500 copies of JETS are printed and distributed each quarter, and the journal goes into every part of the world bringing advanced scholarly writing from a conservative Bible-believing position that holds the Bible to be the verbally inspired and inerrant Word of God.
