Didaktikos. And if you don’t know what it means, you probably aren’t an academic. Or, you’re a systematic theologian and you don’t know anything about Greek (or Hebrew).
You heard it here first (second, if you’re reading this here on ZR [JW])– Faithlife, the maker of Logos Bible Software, is launching a new print journal for professors. The first issue of Didaktikos: Journal of Theological Education should arrive in professors’ mailboxes sometime in late October.
The idea behind Didaktikos is to have a vocational journal for people who teach and train pastors and other ministry leaders, and to encourage and support these professors in their academic calling and personal ministries. The journal also aims to spark productive conversations among theological faculty in North America and around the world. The name comes from 2 Timothy 2:24: “But it is necessary that a servant of the Lord not be quarrelsome but be gentle to all, skilled in teaching (διδακτικός), patient even in the midst of evil” (Mounce’s translation).
The content is written by professors, for professors.
