International Journal of Public Theology

The Global Network for Public Theology sponsors the International Journal of Public Theology, launched in 2007. The journal is edited by Sebastian Kim, York St John University, UK, and published by Brill: Leiden and Boston.

Aims & Scope

Public theology is the result of the growing need for theology to interact with public issues of contemporary society. It seeks to engage in dialogue with different academic disciplines such as politics, economics, cultural studies, religious studies, as well as with spirituality, globalization and society in general. The International Journal of Public Theology, affiliated with the newly founded Global Network for Public Theology, aims at becoming the platform for original interdisciplinary research in the field of public theology.
