Explorations in Theology and Apocalyptic
AAR 2015 (Atlanta, November 21st – 24th)
‘The Place of Divine Judgement in an Apocalyptic Theology’
A Call for Papers
Continuing our explorations in theology and apocalyptic, we invite proposals for short papers (20-25 minutes in length) investigating the place, shape, task and substance of an account of divine judgment in an apocalyptic Christian theology. Does an apocalyptic orientation in Christian life and thought demand any particular approach to the matter of divine judgment? How might an apocalyptic theology hear and be shaped by the cardinal biblical texts that bespeak the last judgment? What role should divine judgment play in an apocalyptic soteriology? What transformations would be required to republish traditional dogmatic accounts of divine judgment in an contemporary ‘apocalyptic key’? Are there particular resources in the theological tradition which ought to inform and guide contemporary reflection on this theme?
Proposals should be no more than 300 words in length, and must be accompanied by a brief single-page CV.
Proposals should be sent to Philip Ziegler: firstname.lastname@example.org
All proposals must be received by April 30th, 2015
