SAGE To begin publishing Interpretation:
A Journal of Bible and Theology

Los Angeles, CA (May 25th, 2011)– SAGE today announced a new partnership with Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology. SAGE will publish the journal on behalf of Union Presbyterian Seminary from 2012; editorial control will remain with the Union Presbyterian Seminary Editor(s) and Editorial Council.

Since 1947, Interpretation has offered pastors, scholars, and theologians a valuable resource for study, preaching, and teaching. Each issue explores a theme or biblical book with writers who have relevant expertise. Four to five major articles, "Between Text and Sermon" essays, and book reviews offer a variety of options for adding to and enhancing readers' knowledge. The journal is published quarterly and the first issue published by SAGE will be January 2012.

“Interpretation is one of the world’s most prestigious journals in biblical studies and theology, and is an exciting addition to our expanding theology program” said Karen Phillips, Editorial Director, SAGE. “We seek to develop our list by partnering with high quality publications and leading institutions such as Union Presbyterian Seminary, and we look forward to supporting Interpretation’s development by extending its circulation worldwide and via our innovations in digital delivery.”

Samuel E. Balentine, Editor, commented: “I am very pleased to enter into this partnership with SAGE, which enables us not only to sustain the distinctive quality of our journal, now in its sixty-fifth year of publication, but also to extend its accessibility to a still larger international audience.”

“Union Presbyterian Seminary is excited about the partnership with SAGE” said Brian Blount, President of Union Presbyterian Seminary. “This alliance will enable Interpretation to continue its tradition of excellence even as the journal expands its reach to a truly global audience. We look forward to an innovative and exciting future with SAGE.”

As part of the many new services offered by SAGE, Interpretation will be available electronically via the award-winning platform, SAGE Journals Online. SJO offers market-leading functionality, including toll-free inter-journal linking and full access to the digital backfile.
