Announcing the Durham Studies in Church Planting and Theology series

We're inviting submissions for scholarly monographs that explore the dynamic intersections of theology and church planting for the new Durham Studies in Church Planting and Theology series.

While rooted in the UK and Church of England context, we particularly encourage proposals that transcend geographical boundaries and engage with diverse global perspectives on mission and church planting.

This new series seeks to understand and articulate what mission looks like within various cultural, social, and ecclesial contexts.

The series editor is Revd Joshua Cockayne, Lecturer of Mission and Evangelism and Director of the Centre for Church Planting Theology and Research at Cranmer Hall Durham.

He's joined by the series editorial board which includes Will Foulger (St Nics Durham), Tom Greggs (University of Aberdeen), Alison Milbank (University of Nottingham), Jay Moon (Asbury Theological Seminary), Sabrina Müller (University of Bonn), Stefan Paas (VU, Amsterdam) and Christian Selvaratnam (St Hild College).

The series will publish books which are:

  1. Theological - The focus of the series is on rigorous research that not only informs the practice of church planting but also contributes to the broader theological discourse. We welcome proposals that engage with theological themes and principles in innovative ways, demonstrating their relevance to contemporary church planting practices. This might include work from practical/ empirical theologians, systematic and historical theologians, and biblical scholars.
  2. Critical - The series encourages books that asks critical questions of church planting, encouraging careful and theologically informed thinking that can equip and inform practitioners and those shaping church vision and strategy.
  3. Practical - While looking to encourage work that raises theological and critical questions, we also encourage authors to consider the practical applications of this work to ministry and mission in the church today. Effective research in this field must go beyond mere quantitative assessment. Proposals should offer a nuanced account of how strategic investments in church planting are yielding tangible outcomes.

Proposals will undergo rigorous peer review before being considered for publication.

Submissions:

  • Proposals should adhere to the usual SCM Press guidelines.
  • Please submit proposals to joshua.cockayne@durham.ac.uk
