Editorial Introduction

Adam Harwood

Adam Harwood is Associate Professor of Theology, occupying the McFarland Chair of Theology; Director of the Baptist Center for Theology and Ministry; Editor, Journal for Baptist Theology and Ministry at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

I am pleased to announce the formation of the JBTM Editorial Advisory Board. The board will be comprised of a small number of Southern Baptists who hold terminal research degrees in the fields of theology, historical studies, and biblical studies. Some of the board members serve primarily in the church and the others serve primarily in the academy. Their primary role is to recommend topics and to review future articles for the two journal issues published each year. The following people have agreed to serve on the Editorial Advisory Board for 2014:

Bart Barber, Ph.D., First Baptist Church of Farmersville, TX

Rex Butler, Ph.D., New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary

Nathan Finn, Ph.D., Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

Eric Hankins, Ph.D., First Baptist Church, Oxford, MS

Malcolm Yarnell, Ph.D., Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

Any shortcomings with the JBTM are the responsibility of the editor alone, but I am confident that the counsel of the Editorial Advisory Board will strengthen the content of this publication.

The present issue features five articles, two article-length book reviews, and eleven book reviews. The articles address a variety of important topics. Kenneth Keathley, Professor of Theology and Director of the L. Russ Bush Center for Faith and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina, explains his shift from young-earth creationism to old-earth creationism. R. Larry Overstreet, who served as Professor of New Testament at Corban University School of Ministry in Tacoma, Washington, addresses the intersection of time and eternity in the half hour of silence in heaven mentioned in Rev 8:1. Twyla Hernandez, Assistant Professor of Christian Missions at Campbellsville University in Campbellsville, Kentucky, reframes the discussion on poverty according to the counsel of Scripture. H. Edward Pruitt, Associate Professor of Christian Studies/Missions and Director of the World Missions Center

at Truett-McConnell College in Cleveland, Georgia, traces theological convergence from the Edinburgh World Missionary Conference of 1910 to its impact on global missions through the First International World Congress on Evangelization in Lausanne of 1974. Dougla...
