Journal of Contemporary Christianities in Context

Editor-in-Chief Martha Frederiks and Lucien van Liere

Exchange. Journal of Contemporary Christianities in Context is a peer-reviewed journal that provides a forum for multidisciplinary research into the dynamics of Christianities worldwide. The journal focuses on Christianities’ contemporary exchanges and transformations within cultural, socio-economic, political and religious milieus. Though the focus of the journal is on contemporary Christianities, articles that discuss longitudinal perspectives on present-day Christianities and/or study contemporary Christianities’ connectivities with the past are also welcomed. The scope includes developments and new trajectories within intercultural theology, interreligious dialogue, missiology and ecumenics.

Call for Papers
I. Contentious practices of the contemporary missionary movement
Studies of the missionary movement abound, but the critical assessment of missionary endeavors is mainly confined to the colonial period. While academic publications discussing contemporary mission exist, they are mainly celebratory; the contemporary missionary movement is rarely studied in a critical manner. Yet there are numerous issues arising from the contemporary missionary movement that require critical inquiry. To name just a few: missionary families working for faith missions who live on the verge of poverty because pledged donations haven’t materialized, disproportionate missionary presence in a certain regions (e.g. Papua New Guinea, Kazakhstan), proselytism and mission-induced fragmentation of the Christian landscape (e.g. in the Balkans and the Middle East), missionary endeavors that flout ethical concerns in the name of mission and vocation (e.g. John Allen Chau) etc.
Deadline for full papers: October 1 2019.

II. Christian communities and contemporary challenges in the Middle East
The Middle East is facing rapidly changing political, social and religious landscapes. Violent conflict, economic despair, religious extremism, refugee flows and migration are only some of the issues that impact the position and role of churches and Christian organizations in Middle Eastern societies. For this Exchange-special we invite articles addressing the (theological, political, literary etc.) responses by Middle Eastern churches and Christian organizations to current social, religious and political issues facing the region.
Deadline for full papers: 1 December 2019.

The International Journal of Asian Christianity is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the scholarly examination of Christianity in Asia and of Asian Christian diaspora in the West and elsewhere. While other major Asian religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam have received great deal of international scholarly attention, Christianity is relatively neglected as a subject of study. This journal intends to rectify this neglect by providing a multidisciplinary forum for the examination of Asian Christianity from sociological, anthropological, comparative religion, religious studies, theological, historical and similar perspectives and link such studies to emerging trends in the social sciences such as migration studies, identities, minorities, secularization, fundamentalism, development, and the political roles of religion.
In the diverse and plural contexts of Asian societies and cultures, Christianity has embedded itself in complex ways giving rise to historically particular Christian communities with their own locally and regionally prolific variants of myth, tradition and culture as well as specific engagements with altering economic and political realities. This unique journal creates a space previously unavailable to examine these dense and sophisticated linkages of religion and culture both in their rich distinctiveness as well as in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary perspective allowing for broader generalizations and theorizations to emerge.
The journal is open to scholars of all religious persuasions or none undertaking serious work on the historical, anthropological, educational, theological, cultural social and political aspects of Asian Christianity and its role in shaping both the past and present Asian societies.

The idea and practice of public theology has recently emerged as a distinct field of scholarship that proactively engages theology with contemporary public issues. The global project of public theology has expanded the western idea of three audiences - the church, the academy and the public domain – and their inter-relationship to multiple publics. It has now become a global discipline that intersects with the emergence of a world Christianity. Now, in the Anthropocene, those three audiences should be viewed in the light of a concern for the whole of creation, including those other creatures with whom we share life and upon whom we depend.
A public theology seeks to be in creative dialogue with different academic disciplines, including politics, economics, law and security studies, cultural studies, religion, spirituality, the natural science and the social sciences and the study of globalization. It is sensitive to the emergence of new publics that arise out of theology’s engagement with other new disciplines – like astrobiology – which redefines understandings of what is space and what is public. It is also a discipline that welcomes the expertise of practitioners reflecting on public policy.

The International Journal of Public Theology, affiliated with the Global Network for Public Theology, is a platform for original inter/transdisciplinary research in this field. Manuscripts submitted for publication must exhibit clear and sustained engagement between theology, broadly construed, and a matter or matters of public significance.
All articles undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and blind refereeing by two anonymous referees.

The Journal of Pentecostal Theology is the first academic serial to publish constructive theological research from a Pentecostal perspective on an international scholarly level. Guest articles from and exchanges with leading scholars from outside the ranks of Pentecostalism are regularly featured (e.g. Richard Bauckham, Walter Brueggemann, Sarah Coakley, Harvey Cox, James D.G. Dunn, Terence Fretheim, John Goldingay, Paul D. Hanson, Stanley Hauerwas, Robert Jenson, Luke Timothy Johnson, Craig Koester, Ulrich Luz, Jürgen Moltmann, Clark Pinnock, Eduard Schweizer, and Michael Welker). These dialogues foster the fruitful ecumenical and theological interchange that continues to expand between global Pentecostalism and the full spectrum of ecclesial and theological traditions.
