The Anglican Theological Review is a quarterly journal of theological reflection within the Episcopal Church USA and the Anglican Church of Canada. In the spirit of sound learning that has been a hallmark of Anglicanism worldwide, its aim is to foster scholarly excellence and thoughtful conversation in and for the church. The journal is committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition and interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science.

The Winter 2017 issue includes the ATR's regular selection of essays, poetry, and book reviews as well as the first Centenary Article offered in celebration of the journal's 100th anniversary, and a new section of extended book reviews titled "Reviews In Depth." Vida Dutton Scudder wrote for the first volume of the ATR in 1918-1919, and her essay on "The Social Teachings of the Church Year" is powerfully relevant today. In her essay Myriam Renaud calls for greater attention to the ways in which income inequality informs and shapes the theologies taught in mainline parishes. Andrew-John Bethke investigates the historical developments and employment of the South African An Anglican Prayer Book 1989, and in doing so opens up important questions of theological coherence within the process of liturgical revision.

Two Practicing Theology essays are offered in this issue. Ellen K. Wondra introduces a series of articles on the practice of ministry within the diverse and rapidly changing contexts of university campuses. Mary Catherine Young describes her work with the Canterbury Downtown ministry in New York City, and the ways she seeks to form communities there analogous to the fellowship that surrounded Jesus.

A new series of Reviews In Depth is introduced in this issue, with four extended reviews of particularly significant texts of the times. Pierre W. Whalon reviews Alan Gregory's Science Fiction Theology, illuminating the theology from which that genre originates. Scott MacDougall reviews the first four volumes of a massive systematics project by Lutheran theologian Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, attending in particular to his pluralistic methodology. MacDougall's own book More Than Communion is the subject of a third review, as Ellen K. Wondra examines his new ambitious project of eschatological ecclesiology. Finally, William J. Danaher, Jr. reviews Peter Ochs's Another Reformation, a book which he says transcends its subject matter by providing both a map and model for contemporary theology.

As always, the ATR includes poetry and book reviews of the latest noteworthy books in the fields of theology and ethics, pastoral theology, historical theology, biblical studies, religion and culture, interreligious studies, poetry, and liturgics.
