Call for Papers JEBS, no 1, 2024
Theme: Interpreting Baptist Identity, Mission and Practice in Historical and Present Contexts
The summer issue of 2024 will celebrate 75 years of the ministry of the International Baptist Theological Study Centre, now in Amsterdam. The three thematic areas have been present in IBTS research from the beginning. This special JEBS issue intends to bring into one volume some of the research that has emerged in the areas of interpreting Baptist identity, analysing mission challenges in a changing world, and making efforts to understand the practices of believing communities, especially in terms of their engagement in society. This topical framework may also be seen in the very story of IBTS itself. These topics can be approached from different angles, depending on the researcher’s inclinations and methods. However, it is the editorial board’s hope that the articles will demonstrate how IBTS research and its work as a study centre has developed over 75 years as well as highlight some of the key questions with which our research community is wrestling.
We invite all who wish to submit papers for consideration to send an abstract (200–300 words which provide a broad summary of the intended article) by email to the Editor Toivo Pilli (email@example.com) as soon as possible.
