We publish articles on current world issues related to religion, theology, and politics. We seek to articulate the public meaning of faith, bringing the resources of religious tradition to bear on such topics as poverty, human rights, economic justice, international relations, national priorities, popular culture, and yes even politics as long as it is related to faith. We are also interested in pieces that examine or critique the theology and ethos of individual religious communities. We welcome articles that find fresh meaning in old traditions and that adapt or apply religious traditions to new circumstances.
If you would like to write an article for this site, contact us. Please allow four to six weeks for a response from our editors.
