A Call for Papers

Contributions are invited for the second issue of Journal of Ecotheology, scheduled for publication in October 2015. Papers should generally be in the area of environmental theology, including: systematic theology, Christian spirituality, ecclesiology, Biblical studies, Church history or Christian ethics. Articles with a distinctly Australian orientation and which engage with contemporary environmental issues are especially desired. The editorial committee is happy to review abstracts and comment on whether a proposed paper falls within the scope of the publication.

We aim for a journal that combines academic rigour with contemporary relevance and accessibility. Of its nature the Journal of Ecotheology is interdisciplinary, and we welcome contributions from all theological traditions. We also welcome contributions from emerging as well as established scholars.

For consideration in the October 2015 issue, submissions need to be received by 30 June 2015.
