A Forum for Theology in the World Journals

A Forum for Theology in the World is an academic refereed journal aimed at engaging with issues in the contemporary world, a world which is pluralist and eucumenical in nature. The journal reflects this pluralism and ecumenism. Each edition is theme specific and has its own editor responsible for the production. The journal aims to elicit and encourage dialogue on topics and issues in contemporary society and within a variety of religious traditions. The Editor in Chief welcomes submissions of manuscripts, collections of articles, for review from individuals or institutions, which may be from seminars or conferences or written specifically for the journal. An internal peer review is expected before submitting the manuscript. It is the expectation of the publisher that, once a manuscript has been accepted for publication, it will be submitted according to the house style to be found at the back of this volume. All submissions to the Editor in Chief are to be sent to: hdregan@

Each edition is available as a journal subscription, or as a book in print, pdf or epub, through the ATF Press web site — Journal subscriptions are also available through EBSCO and other library suppliers.

Aspirations for Modernity and Prosperity (PAPERBACK)
$USD 25.51
‘Up to now the social character of Indonesian Pentecostalism
has remained something of a mystery. This book changes
the state of our knowledge entirely. Its chapters provide us
with important and often unexpected insights into Indonesian
Pentecostalism’s varied worship styles, organizational
diversity, and gender dynamics. No less remarkably, it explores
the nature of Pentecostal-Muslim relations and examines their
implications for Indonesian pluralism as a whole. In short, this
book is one of the most important ever written on Pentecostalism
in Asia. It should be read by everyone interested in religion
in Indonesia and in the late modern vitality and diversity of
Pentecostal Christianity.’

Religion, and World Affairs, Boston University; editor of Global
Pentecostalism in the 21st Century (2013)).

World United or a World Exploited? Christian Perspectives on Globalisation (HARDBACK)
$USD 24.05
In this issue of Interface, scholars from the Yarra Institute for Religion and Social Policy within Melbourne’s University of Divinity tackle key aspects of globalisation.

� Stephen Ames examines how religious belief adds a depth of meaning to human wellbeing and personhood, and a moral context for our response to globalisation.
� John D’Arcy May considers how world religions can work collaboratively to enhance human wellbeing. He challenges the ‘secularisation thesis’, noting also the growing influence of Buddhism and Islam.
� Bruce Duncan argues that the Global Financial Crisis is fundamentally a moral one exacerbated by neoliberal economics. To avoid such crises, economic policies must concentrate on promoting social equity and human wellbeing for everyone.
� Rowan Ireland highlights the contradictions in the effects of globalisation in a Brazilian shanty-town, showing how these processes can disempower poorer people, but if well managed can develop resources in local struggles for justice and human rights.
� Robyn Reynolds considers how all religious traditions can manifest the divine in the world and promote the struggle for human wellbeing. Christian mission today involves listening to the poor and marginalised, especially women and indigenous peoples.
� Jim and Therese D’Orsa focus on the role of education in helping develop a framework of meaning to make sense of the world and interpret people’s personal experience.
� Wes Campbell draws from the German theologian, Ernst Troeltsch, to examine the relativising effects on religions and cultures of globalisation.

Editor: Dr Peter Price is Lecturer at Yarra Theological Union, a College of the University of Divinity, and Adjunct Senior Research Fellow (History) of Monash University School of Philosophical, Historical and International Studies. Learn More
