Description of the Summer 2018 Issue
“The Love of Learning and the Desire for God” celebrates the theme of this centenary issue of the ATR. Theology and spirituality lie at the heart of the articles selected for this edition, drawn from throughout the last century of the journal. These essays reveal the ever-widening points of view, styles, and concerns of the ATR’s writers throughout the decades, and show how Anglican writing has become more attentive to global voices, to issues of inequality, and to the imaginative richness of poetry. A team of editors and colleagues selected representative articles from hundreds of options, seeking the best work of the last century from the ATR. The pieces selected were written for lay as well as academic audiences, range from topics of evangelism to literature to womanism, and include samples of the best poetry found in these pages.
This ATR edition contains a thoughtful review article on how two recent books attempt to mine the doctrine of the Trinity for practical results, and as always, the issue includes reviews of the latest noteworthy books in the fields of theology and ethics, pastoral theology, historical theology, biblical studies, religion and culture, interreligious studies, poetry, and liturgics
