Theologica Issue on the Son of God

My good friend Matthew Owen is a philosopher with a lively interest in theology. Some time ago he invited me to co-edit with him a theme issue of the journal Theologica: An International Journal for Philosophy of Religion and Philosophical Theology. Matt and I have talked a lot over the years about issues in christology and trinitarian theology, and decided it would be worthwhile to pull together some papers on philosophical theology about the son of God. We invited a few contributors and then put out a call for papers which got some good responses. The result is a set of six papers that explore this Christian doctrine from a variety of angles.

Theologica is a multidisciplinary journal, making room for a set of approaches that go variously by the names philosophy of religion, philosophical theology, and analytic theology, among others (we’ve got biblical studies and some forays into historical theology in here). It’s one of those smart new journals that makes use of the best option in contemporary academic publishing: peer reviewed and open access. That means that there’s quality control but no access limitations. You can just click right through and read 150 pages of current academic philosophical theology, and save individual essays in pdf form.

Here it is: Theologica: An International Journal for Philosophy of Religion and Philosophical Theology, Vol 3 No 1 (2019): The Son of God.

I feel like Matt Owen did most of the work on this co-editing project, but I’m still happy to see it reach publication at last. Thanks to the editorial team at Theologica, especially Jean-Baptiste Guillon and Alejandro Pérez.

Also, I’d run through the table of contents for you, but (a) the TOC is right there at the link, and (b) in our issue editorial, Matt goes through the articles’ contributions very nicely.
