Vol. 2 No. 2 (2021): Christian Theology After Christendom
The second issue of volume two of the Journal of the Council for Research on Religion (JCREOR) came out of a colloquium in honour of Professor Emeritus Douglas John Hall, entitled “Christian Theology after Christendom: Engaging the Thought of Douglas John Hall.” The event was held at McGill University in November 2019, hosted by the McGill School of Religious Studies and Emmanuel College in the University of Toronto. We were delighted to welcome so many graduate students at the colloquium and to hear from them both through the papers they presented and the discussions they engaged.
These articles were chosen for this issue because of their focus on themes central to the corpus of Douglas Hall’s work. While some engage his work directly, others raise interesting questions and concerns related to the theme. These articles should be considered as an accompaniment to the volume of papers published in 2021 by Lexington Books/Fortress Academic and entitled Christian Theology after Christendom: Engaging the Thought of Douglas John Hall, edited by Patricia G. Kirkpatrick and Pamela R. McCarroll.
Professor Hall’s thought has influenced the thinking of generations and so it is inspiring to see how this generation of theologians is also engaging the theme of Christian Theology after Christendom, so central to his work.
We are grateful that this volume was made possible by funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.
