Christianity in Social Action CFP

Yaakov Ariel (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill), Jens Zimmermann (Regent College), and Gregor Thuswaldner (Provost, Whitworth College) are editing the Routledge Handbook of Christianity and Culture. They invite the following important contribution:

An approx. 8000-word essay on “Christianity and Social Action” which will provide an historical overview as well as insight into current debates. The essay will be due in fall 2020 (negotiable).
The essays in the handbook are geared towards generally educated readers, so it’s not a conventional scholarly work. In fact, footnotes are not included; some essays may have a few endnotes but for the most part they don’t.

Here is a short description from Routledge:

The aim of Routledge Handbooks is to publish a comprehensive, must-have survey of a core sub-discipline aimed at the library market. Most are published in hardback first, with a new-in-paperback for students and individual purchase 18 to 24 months later. The main goal of each handbook is to survey a topic, explaining why the issue or area is important, and critically discussing the leading views in the area.

If you are interested, please contact Dr. Gregor Thuswaldner at He will provide you with more details.
