Koinonia: Zondervan Press’s new academics group blog
Here’s the opening post from Zondervan’s new academic group blog. Quite an impressive group of scholars contributing to this one. I’d definitely subscribe to the feed.
On behalf of the Zondervan Academic team, welcome to our blog, Koinonia. This is the obligatory and obvious opening post. Please allow me to lay out some of our plans.
Chiefly—and you may have already picked this up from the name of our blog—we want to build real koinonia, community by intimate participation. We think the conversations here, though digital, will impact the community of Christ. They will be appropriate for the academy, church, and coffeehouse.
We’ve gathered together some of the most important voices in today’s biblical-theological conversations to join us. Just to kindle your interest . . . Bill Mounce is going to kick things off on Monday with the first in a weekly series that focuses on biblical Greek, translation, exegesis, and related issues. Craig Blomberg will be checking in with us later in the week.
In addition to these conversations, we have some great things planned in the first few months. You’ll be hearing from other authors, as well as some Zondervan staff. One series of posts we’re planning will take you through the entire academic book process, from conception to publication. There will be the occasional marketing plug, but it will be occasional—and hopefully both appropriate and discreet. “Corporate” would not be a way to describe us here. We’re striving for trust, humility, and transparency.
