The journal is committed to creative intellectual engagement with Christian tradition and interdisciplinary inquiry that includes literature and the arts, philosophy, and science.
DESCRIPTION OF THE SUMMER 2015 ISSUE
The Summer 2015 issue of the ATR opens with Ross Kane's postcolonial examination of the ongoing controversies about human sexuality and ecclesial communion, focusing on the underlying presuppositions and modes of discussion used in the debate. Ronald Damholt then discusses ways in which Western translations terms such as "good," "right," or "virtuous" tend to focus on the individual's relationship with God as an "internal" matter, and neglect the understanding of justice as involving "external" behaviors in community. In his essay on Christianity and world religions in writings of Barth and Tillich, David R. Mason finds fundamental concepts that may help Christians maintain a claim for the indispensability of Jesus Christ while also recognizing the saving grace of God in other faiths.
Kortright Davis, William Danaher, and F. Gerald Downing offer shorter pieces on an assortment of topics, from Black prophetic moments to moral dispositions in J. M. Coetzee's novel Elizabeth Costello, to a fresh perspective on the friendship of God. Jay Sidebotham provides our Practicing Theology essay in this issue, revisiting the work of the RevealWorks project identifying best practices across denominations for stimulating congregational life and mission. S. T. Campagna-Pinto's review article engages books on Barack Obama's attempt to reach both religious and secular citizens through the theme of hope. As always, this issue of the ATR also includes poetry and book reviews.
