Congratulations to editors Oliver Crisp, Michael Rea, Trent Dougherty and Kevin Diller on the launch of an important new open access journal: The Journal of Analytic Theology.
What is “analytic” theology?
Good question. Roughly: theology done using the tools of contemporary (typically English-language) “analytic” philosophy.
What is that? Here’s one answer by a master practitioner. Also, this journal aims to “explore theological and meta-theological topics in a manner that prizes terminological clarity and argumentative rigor.” I assume that the topics will not be limited to Christian ones, although glancing through the names on the editorial board, I don’t recognize the names of anyone I know to be a non-Christian.
I’m sure this is going to be an important source both for philosophers and for theologians. The inaugural issue in fact features some interactions between the two.
It also features an interesting article by trinities contributor Scott Williams – congratulations, Scott! Maybe I’ll post a few comments or here on trinities soon.
Finally, kudos are due to the Center for the Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame and Baylor University for their support of this project. Their support is advancing the cause of Christian thought.
Love the logo. If they made another, they could talk about their official “logos.”
OK, I’ll stop.
