About this Journal

The journal is concerned through its articles and book reviews to promote creative thinking and lively scholarly interchange in the interpretation of all aspects of Christianity as a world religion. Articles from historical, theological, and social scientific perspectives are equally welcome. Whilst 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, contributions that reflect on channels of influence in either direction between Christianity in the majority world and western Europe or North American will also be considered.
