Christian Systematic Theology Unit

Statement of Purpose: 

This Unit promotes new constructive work in Christian systematic theology that is in dialogue with the historical Christian theological traditions on the one hand and with all aspects of the contemporary context on the other — intellectual movements, methodologies, multiple theological and religious perspectives, and ethical/social/political contexts.

Call for Papers: 

The Christian Systematic Theology Section invites proposals for individual papers or complete panels related to our theme of grace. We invite proposals to consider the nature of grace, the conditions for receiving grace, the effects of grace, the distinctions of grace, and the relation of grace to other major Christian claims. Papers should be constructive or synthetic rather than merely historical or analytical in nature, but grounding in traditional texts and discussions is desired. We especially invite proposals related to the following sub-themes:

● Transformation, Re-formation, and transfiguration (including notions of eschatology, theology of the body, theological engagement with disability, and theosis)

● Nature and grace

● Incarnation

● Soteriology and atonement

● Sacraments

● Justification/sanctification

● The role of grace in artistic making/creativity and the relation of grace to beauty
