IJST Adds Matthew Levering to Editorial Board

December 15, 2012

In the final 2012 issue of the International Journal of Systematic Theology the editors reported the sad news of the passing of Ralph Del Colle, who among his distinguished career served as one of the journal’s editors. With 2013 fast approaching those of us who follow the journal have been curious to see how the make-up of the editorial board might change following this loss.

To help keep its perspective international IJST has included editors hailing from England, Scotland, Germany, and the United States. While it looks as though the official editorial announcement isn’t up yet (the contents for the January issue should be posted online before the end of the month), the journal’s Web site has been updated to now include the University of Dayton’s Matthew Levering among its editors.

It seems like a solid choice for the journal: Levering is a U.S. Catholic and a rising star in the world of academic theology. He received his PhD from Boston College in 2000, and has taught at Dayton since 2009. His long list of publications includes Scripture and Metaphysics (Blackwell, 2004) and Participatory Biblical Exegesis (Notre Dame, 2008).

John Webster, Stephen Holmes, and Paul Nimmo remain on the journal’s editorial board, with Christoph Schwöbel no longer listed. Michael Allen is the book reviews editor. While perhaps not quite as “international” as it used to be, one of the discipline’s leading publications is looking a bit Scottish: Webster, Holmes, and Nimmo teach at the historic universities of Aberdeen, St. Andrews, and Edinburgh (respectively). So, yeah … Scotland is pretty much the centre of the world.
