Adventist Review Staff
Contribute as Scholars
TAFF MEMBERS of the Adventist Review not only serve the church in their respective editorial and ministerial roles but continue to interact significantly with the larger academic community, in scholarly publications and public conferences.
Editor Bill Knott read a paper titled “Theologian or Pastor: Wrestling With Role and Identity” at the annual doctor of ministry conference at Andrews University on October 26. Ten days earlier, he also made a presentation titled “A Brief History of Adventists and Social Advocacy” at the “Marriage, Homosexuality, and the Church” conference, which convened at Andrews October 15-17. (See Adventist Review, Nov. 26, 2009, p. 8.)
Associate editor Gerald Klingbeil read an invited paper titled “Clocks and Calendars: The Cohesive Function of Time in Biblical Ritual” on August 29, in Helsinki, Finland, for a workshop titled “Ritual in Early Judaism and Early Christianity,” organized by the University of Helsinki.
Klingbeil has also just published a study on Old Testament anthropology and its relevance for a study of the church, titled “Between ‘I’ and ‘We’: The Anthropology of the Hebrew Bible and Its Importance for a Twenty-First Century Ecclesiology” in the Bulletin for Biblical Research. Two other major peer-reviewed journals have agreed to publish research done by Klingbeil. The Rome-based Italian journal Biblica has accepted a study titled “‘Eyes to Hear’: Nehemiah 1:6 From a Pragmatics and Ritual Theory Perspective,” coauthored with his wife, Chantal Klingbeil. The French-based research journal Revue Biblique accepted a study on the importance and theology of the Sabbath law in the two appearances of the Decalogue mentioned in Exodus 20 and Deuteronomy 5, titled “The Sabbath Law in the Decalogue(s): Creation and Liberation as a Paradigm for Community.”
