Modern Church is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr Karen O' Donnell as the new managing editor of their academic journal Modern Believing.
Dr O’ Donnell is a Research Fellow in Digital Theology and Pedagogy at the CODEC Research Centre of Digital Theology, Durham University, with strong research interests in constructive theology, trauma, and theological anthropology. She takes over the role from Revd Dr Steven Shakespeare, whose last issue will be the October 2018 journal.
Modern Church is thrilled to be supporting the Greenbelt Festival this summer. For us, it is a real leap of imagination – out of our comfort zone and into a place where anything might happen.
For two generations Greenbelt has stood for open, thoughtful, imaginative, and inclusive faith, and we are proud to be even a small part of its work and witness.
As Modern Church enters its 120th year (it was founded on 27th July 1898), we have much to celebrate: a long history of publishing quality theological work that has contributed to and, from time to time, shaped the national theological debate, in the Church of England and beyond.
Modern Church has always been about communication: of ideas, critique, a theological method, and scholarship. How we continue and communicate that heritage and continuing work in a digital age and new context has become a pressing question.
