(British Association for the Study of Religion)

DISKUS is a peer-reviewed journal which welcomes submissions of articles from scholars in the study of religions and related disciplines.

The Executive Committee of the British Association for the Study of Religions is grateful to Professors Brian Bocking, Gavin Flood and Michael Pye, for the establishment and success of DISKUS so far.

Faith and Philosophy

(The Society for Christian Philosophers)

Faith and Philosophy

Faith and Philosophy encourages discussions among philosophers representing a wide variety of theological perspectives and philosophical orientations that fall largely within the philosophy of religion. It seeks critical and reflective self-understanding of Christian faith carried out in dialogue with those who do not, as well as with those who do, share its Christian commitment. Faith and Philosophy seeks to serve the Christian community by articulating Christian faith in a way that will withstand rigorous examination and by exploring the implications of that faith for all aspects of human life. It also seeks to serve the intellectual community at large by providing clear and credible discussions of issues related to Christian faith. Faith and Philosophy is widely recognized as the leading journal in its field. It carries refereed scholarly articles which address philosophical issues from a Christian perspective, for discussions of philosophical issues which arise within the Christian faith, and for articles from any perspective which deal critically with the philosophical credentials of the Christian faith. Along with full-length articles, this journal also features back-and-forth critical discussions, symposia, and reviews of books.

The journal is committed to fostering discussion involving a wide range of philosophical perspectives and religious traditions.

Philo strives to publish original, conceptually precise, and argumentatively rigorous articles in all fields of philosophy.

It also welcomes work on the philosophical credentials of both naturalism and various supernaturalist alternatives to naturalism. This would include work ordinarily classified as philosophy of religion (theistic proofs, the problem of evil, and the like) as well as any other work that directly or indirectly defends or challenges naturalism.

Science of Religion

(International Association for the History of Religions)

Science of Religion

The objective of Science of Religion is to provide a systematic bibliography of articles which contribute in various ways to the academic study of religions. This in turn is intended to facilitate the work and international collaboration of all scholars working in this field. The abstracts published in Science of Religion are drawn from a wide range of journals in various languages and reflect a range of contributory or complementary disciplines. The list of periodicals consulted is reviewed regularly and suggestions for improvement are welcomed. Science of Religion does not seek to appraise or criticise the contents of any articles. Nor does it endorse any of the religious standpoints or agendas referred to in the articles abstracted. In all cases the individual authors are responsible for their own opinions and any reference to these opinions should take account of the complete article in the original source.

Sophia

(University of Melbourne)

Sophia

Sophia provides a forum for discussions in philosophy and religion, focusing on the interstices between metaphysics and theological thinking. The discussions encompass the wider ambience of the sciences (‘natural’ philosophy and human/social sciences), ethical and moral concerns in the public sphere, critical feminist theology and cross-cultural perspectives. Sophia‘s cross-cultural and cross-frontier approach is reflected not only in the international composition of its editorial board, but also in its consideration of analytic, continental, Asian and indigenous responses to issues and developments in the field of philosophy of religion.

Toronto Journal of Theology

(Toronto School of Theology)

Toronto Journal of Theology

While the Toronto Journal of Theology is predominately theological in focus (not surprisingly, given the title), it often ventures into territory more germane to the philosophy of religion, as well. It has received contributions from philosophers such as Slavoj Žižek, for example, and has delved into such philosophical topics as aethetics and post-foundationalism. Reflecting diverse Christian traditions, the journal explores the full range of theological inquiry: philosophy of religion, biblical studies, history of Christianity, pastoral theology, Christian ethics, systematic theology, and interdisciplinary studies. It provides a Canadian forum for discussing issues in cross-cultural perspectives, featuring pertinent articles, in-depth reviews and information on the latest publications in the field. Of critical interest to academics, clergy, and lay and professional theologians, anyone concerned with contemporary opinion on theological issues will find the journal essential reading.

Zygon: Journal of Religion and Science

(Institute on Religion in an Age of Science; Center for Advanced Study in Religion and Science)

Zygon

Zygon focuses on the questions of meaning and values that challenge individual and social existence today. It brings together the best thinking of the day from the physical, biological, and social sciences with ideas from philosophy, theology, and religious studies. The journal’s contributors seek to keep united what may often become disconnected: values with knowledge, goodness with truth, religion with science.
