Ecclesiology

The Journal for Ministry, Mission and Unity

Editor: Paul Avis
Ecclesiology is an international, ecumenical and fully peer-reviewed theological journal. It is designed to meet the growing demand for theological resources in the area of ecclesiology – the scholarly study of the nature and the purpose of the Christian Church. The journal also features articles exploring wider issues in ecclesiology including those to do with the identity of the Christian Church and the place of ecclesiology within Christian theology. The main focus of the journal is on the mission, ministry and unity of the Church.

The Ecclesiology is published in association with the Department of Theology and Centre for the Study of the Christian Church, The University of Exeter, and with the Ecclesiological Investigations Network. It is published three times per year: in January, May and September.
