Studies in World Christianity – Book of the Week

Our book of the week this week is a journal issue – Studies in World Christianity: the Edinburgh review of theology and religion: 24,1, 2018

The latest issue of Studies in World Christianity has a new editor, our former CCCW director, Dr Emma Wild-Wood. It also has an article by Dr Brian Stanley, another former CCCW director, who has written an article in memoriam of Dr T. Jack Thompson (1943-2017), a distinguished historian of Malawian and African Christianity. He served as director of the Centre for the Study of World Christianity in Edinburgh from 2005-2008 (Dr Emma Wild-Wood’s new post) and he was a regular contributor to this journal.

We subscribe to this journal and receive print issues three times a year. We have the entire collection, starting in 1995.

The journal seeks to “promote creative thinking and lively scholarly interchange in the interpretation of all aspects of Christianity as a world religion… from historical, theological, and social scientific perspectives… The primary interest of the journal is in the rich diversity of Christian life and thought found in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Oceania, and eastern Europe.”

Why don’t you browse through the collection for yourself when you have a moment to spare?

A new book of the week is featured in the library on the display shelves. Occasionally these will be posted to our library webpage.
