“SCU Professor Adrian Hinkle Publishes Journal Review”

BETHANY – During this time of the school year, many university professors are consumed organizing learning objectives, preparing class syllabi, and attempting to accommodate students not yet accustomed to their classes. Professor Adrian Hinkle, the department chair of the School of Theology and Missions at Southwestern Christian University, took the time out of her busy schedule to publish her second journal review in the fall of 2010.
Adrian Hinkle graduated with an M.A. in Theology from Southern Nazarene University and is currently in pursuit of a Ph. D. from the University of Wales. Hinkle has had one journal review published in The Pneuma Review in the winter of 2009. It is during her candidacy for her doctorate that Hinkle thought up the idea and took advantage of the opportunity to compose her second journal publication.
While preparing to write her thesis, Adrian Hinkle stumbled upon Dale B. Martin’s Pedagogy of the Bible: An Analysis and Proposal. Throughout her readings, Hinkle found more and more things that she and the author did not agree on, resulting in her decision to undertake a journal review over the book.
The review has been published in this year’s edition the Journal of Biblical and Pneumatological Research (JBPR), edited by Paul Elbert. The publication is produced once a year in the fall and is a compilation of printing reviews and articles on theological and pneumatological interpretation, religious experience in various contexts, and the role of the Holy Spirit. The review will be published alongside works by some of Hinkle’s favorite theologians, including Walter Brueggermann.
“It is encouraging to see other theologians from the Pentecostal tradition continue to surface and strive to bridge the gap to serve God in both spirit and truth, rather than merely embracing one or the other.” said Hinkle.
