Southeastern Theological Review (STR) is the faculty journal of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, NC. Because our mission is β€œto equip the Church to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and fulfill the Great Commission,” we desire to publish high-quality material written not only by those living inside and outside of the United States, but also by those outside the Southern Baptist Convention. Our hope is to facilitate lively and informed conversations on a wide variety of topics of interest to Christians around the globe.
