- Evangelical Theological Society
The Evangelical Theological Society is a professional society of Biblical scholars, educators, pastors, and students with the stated purpose of serving
Jesusand his church by advancing evangelical scholarship. It was established in 1949 in Cincinnati. The number of members in 2005 was over 4,200. Members range from many different denominational or theological backgrounds but all, as evangelicals, unite under the following two doctrinal points::"The Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, is the Word of Godwritten and is therefore inerrant in the autographs. God is a Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each an uncreated person, one in essence, equal in power and glory."
Full, voting membership is available to anyone with a
Master of Theology(Th.M.) degree or its equivalent, and who subscribe to the above doctrinal statement. Interested evangelicals who do not have such a degree can apply for associate membership, but do not have voting rights. There is also a student membership.
The society produces the
Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society(JETS) which contains scholarly articles and book reviews from various evangelical perspectives.
On May 5, 2007, Frank Beckwith resigned as President following his decision to be received into full communion in the
Catholic Church. [http://www.etsjets.org/popups/Beckwith_statement.html] . He was replaced as president by C Hassell Bullock, Professor of Biblical Studies, Wheaton College.
