Call for Proposals
This Group invites papers on the topic of Kierkegaard as a resource for evangelical theology and the constructive contributions Kierkegaard may offer to evangelical theology. Soren Kierkegaard was first and foremost a Christian thinker whose fervent attempt to revitalize Christian faith continues to offer rich resources for contemporary theology. How might his understanding of faith and reason, sin, despair, conversion, faith, hope, love, Christ, the Bible, the Church and its relation to culture, or other Christian concepts be applicable to and appropriated by contemporary evangelical theology? This will be a cosponsored session with the Kierkegaard, Religion, and Culture Group.
This Group is one of a very few academic professional groups specifically created for the academic study of evangelical theology without a confessional requirement for membership or participation and that seeks to be diverse with regard to gender, denomination, ethnicity, and culture. The Group seeks to construct sessions at each Annual Meeting that address crucial issues both within the evangelical communities of North America and the world and between evangelicals and nonevangelical religious movements and theologies. The Group sponsors sessions with theological, historical, and/or sociological foci. The Group’s goal has always been to stay on the “cutting edge” of evangelical thought and to cross boundaries between evangelical and non-evangelical religious communities in order to create dialogue and constructive mutual understanding.
