Horizons in Biblical Theology
Editor-in-Chief: Gregory Lee Cuéllar

Horizons in Biblical Theology (HBTH) is an international peer-reviewed journal that brings together cutting-edge interdisciplinary research at the interface of biblical studies and theology. The journal’s theme of “horizons” is meant to evoke the creative ambiguities of the disciplinary borderlands of biblical studies and theology; while “biblical theology” signals a critical, intersectional, and ecclesial discourse with global relevance.


A joint project between Austin Seminary and Westminster John Knox Press, Connections: A Lectionary Commentary for Preaching and Worship provides new resources to help preachers achieve the goal of connecting congregations to Scripture. This nine-volume series offers creative commentary on each reading in the three-year cycle of the Revised Common Lectionary. It does so first by viewing that reading through the lens of its connections to the rest of Scripture; and then seeing the reading through the lenses of culture, film, fiction, ethics, science, and other aspects of contemporary life. Included as well are commentaries on the Psalm readings that connect them both to the other readings for the day and to the congregation's experience of worship.
