For the systematicians among you, the Tyndale Fellowship’s Christian Doctrine group has a call for papers for its conference in Cambridge on 27-29 June 2018.
Celebrating the completion of Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen’s 5-vol theology, A Constructive Christian Theology for the Pluralistic World (Eerdmans), the Tyndale Fellowship Christian Doctrine group turns attention to this project’s ambition contribution. One of comparative theologies, developing a constructive Christian theological vision in dialogue with the Christian tradition, science, contemporary theology in global and contextual diversity, with Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism, highlighting our current religiously pluralist and secular societies, the CD group invites papers proposals exploring various aspects of his project. This may include focused attention on doctrinal loci of particular volumes, the interreligious or interdisciplinary conversations therein, or the overall features of the comparative project, including its correlation with comparative religious studies and its primary interlocutors (Pannenberg, Moltmann, etc.) or various sources employed in his theology (scripture, tradition, culture). We also invite papers from those outwith the Protestant Evangelical tradition that Kärkkäinen sits within, including those from other religious traditions, other academic disciplines beyond theology and missiology, and representing the situation of contemporary culture, including views of history, economics, sociology, history, political philosophy, and religious studies broadly defined.
To submit a short paper proposal, please send a short 150-200 word abstract to Jason.firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 January. We will inform you of the outcome of your proposal by 15 February.
