We at Between the Times would like to make you aware of the recent publication of the newest issue of Southeastern Theological Review (vol. 3, no. 1). In this issue several New Testament, History, and Philosophy scholars interact with the recent book by Michael Licona, The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach (IVP, 2010).
As many of you know this fine book sparked a good deal of debate in the blogosphere. The goal of this issue of Southeastern Theological Review, however, is not to further stoke the fires but to provide a historical context for the debate and, most importantly, discussion of the main lines of argument presented by Licona. To that end, we include below a link to the introductory article by Robert Stewart and Heath Thomas (Editor of STR). This article sets the table for the present issue and provides an idea of the kind of work you can expect from STR.
The latest issue of STR includes:
“The Minimal Facts Approach to the Resurrection of Jesus: The Role of Methodology as a Crucial Component in Establishing Historicity” by Gary R. Habermas
“Inference, Method, and History” by Timothy J. McGrew
“The Resurrection of Jesus: Explanation or Interpretation?” by C. Behan McCullagh
“In Reply to Habermas, McGrew, and McCullagh” Michael R. Licona
“A Roundtable Discussion with Michael Licona on The Resurrection of Jesus: A New Historiographical Approach” featuring Danny Akin, Craig Blomberg, Paul Copan, Michael Kruger, Michael Licona, and Charles Quarles
