Global Christianity – re-launched academic journal

Recently re-launched, Global Christianity is an academic journal for the multidisciplinary study of Christianity in its various local and global expressions. The journal views global Christianity as a set of interrelated phenomena which can be studied from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives. The primary interest of the journal is in the intersections between different forms of Christianity and various local contexts: religions, cultures, political systems and societies. As a multidisciplinary journal, with an editorial board constituted by scholars from a variety of disciplines, Global Christianity is dedicated to advancing academic co-operation and intellectual exchange across academic disciplines and research traditions. Hence, we welcome scholarly contributions of high academic quality from a broad variety of fields including but not limited to anthropology, development studies, history, migration studies, peace and conflict studies, religious studies, sociology, and theology.
Global Christianity is the continuation of Swedish Missiological Themes, published since 1913. The journal is published quarterly and observes a double-blind peer-review process.
Interested authors can submit their contributions to the Editor, Aron Engberg (aron.engberg@teol.lu.se), or contact him for more information.

The Routledge Companion to Christianity in Africa offers a multi-disciplinary analysis of the Christian tradition across the African continent and throughout a long historical span. The volume offers historical and thematic essays tracing the introduction of Christianity in Africa, as well as its growth, developments, and effects, including the lived experience of African Christians. Individual chapters address the themes of Christianity and gender, the development of African-initiated churches, the growth of Pentecostalism, and the influence of Christianity on issues of sexuality, music, and public health. This comprehensive volume will serve as a valuable overview and reference work for students and researchers worldwide.
