So, if I am looking for ways to broaden my scholarly resources, would you recommend journals to accomplish that?

Thanks!

Depends what you mean by broadening scholarly resources.  Do you mean enlarging the number of resources?  Do you mean broadening the perspectives?  Do you mean broadening the range of thinking in greater detail? do you mean deepening or broadening?  What are you lacking?  What are you hoping for that commentaries are not doing for you?

Short answer: Yes.  Great big huge fat blinking yes.

And... are you used to reading journal articles (in print or some other format)?

My convictions are definitely conservative, reformed and baptist.  I have mainly built my library like that.  But have began to think I need access to viewpoints that are not harmonious with my own to better my understanding, and to be available during my academic studies. 

I currently have Themelios.  I have had the print versions of Tabletalk, Bible Study Magazine, and years ago the magazine put out by The White Horse Inn (I cant remember the name), but nothing really "scholarly" in the technical sense.  I want to say that is the extent of my journal exposure.

Michael, journals would most definitely help you to go deeper in your bible study.  Journal updates from FL have been somewhat spotty, but there are some new bundles in prepub that you can check out to see if you are interested.  To see how useful they might be for you, i would recommend getting a subscription at galaxie for a small monthly fee. 

It is definitely much better to have your journals integrated into Logos though.

Michael S.:

Many theological schools provide online access to ATLA database of journals that should be accessible during academic studies. If you find them useful in that setting you may wish to add them to your personal library.

This  week I'm writing a paper on the use of "baptism" in 1 Peter 3:21.  The following search shows over 42K hits on the reference of 1 Peter 3:21 - and this is just the Full-text academic journals. Of course I would need to thin this down to make it manageable for scholarly research.
