AJT Call for Papers: Asian Christian Spirituality

The Asia Journal of Theology is calling for contributions to a theme issue on: Asian Christian Spirituality

If the Christian life is lived out in a specific historical and social context, what shape does it take? Asia offers a wide variety of contexts for exploring this question. E.g., what form does the Christian life take given the variety of social-political systems? How is Christian spirituality affected by other faith traditions and especially by an all-pervading primal religious consciousness?

The theme could be explored in terms of, but not exclusive to, one of the following sub-themes:

  • Spirituality in a postpandemic world
  • Spirituality and interfaith relations
  • Spirituality and social justice
  • Spirituality of youth
  • Spirituality and aesthetics

We welcome submission from scholars, academics, and pastors working in fields such as

  • Biblical and Historical Studies
  • Theology, Ethics, and Philosophy
  • Practical Theology and Christian Education

Submissions will be subject to blind, peer-review. Manuscripts of 5,000 to 6,000 words are preferred. Include an abstract of 100 to 150 words. Submissions should conform to the Chicago Manual of Style (Turabian). For specific guidelines on style, please refer to the AJT stylesheet (

Send your paper to the editor, AJT (

The deadline for submission is January 1, 2024. The theme issue will be published in April 2024. If there are articles for more than one issue they will be published in subsequent issues.

A conference sponsored by ATESEA on Asian Christian Spirituality will be held in Bangkok from July 25 to 28, 2023. Those wishing to present their papers at the conference must submit their drafts to the editor by May 30, 2023. The number of presentations is limited to 20.
