Reviews

2020 has been a year of intersecting crises. From the distress of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic fallout of national lockdowns, to the urgent cry of Black Lives Matter and the mounting seriousness of ecological collapse, this past year has been one unlike any other in recent memory. As in previous times of crisis, theologians and scholars of religion feel the pressure of these events acutely; through the institutional voices of certain religions, through challenges to the subject’s critical and intellectual framework, and simply through the disruption of their day-to-day lives. In light of this, key questions persist about the role of theology and religion in such times of crisis. How should theologians and scholars of religion engage with and react to the crises which have characterised the year 2020? What insight can the subject offer in response to these events, both practically and conceptually? In what ways might religions and religious institutions themselves be in crisis? For this edition of The Journal of the Oxford Graduate Theological Society, the Editorial Board invites papers exploring these questions and the broad theme of ‘Theology, Religion and Crisis’ from a variety of (inter)disciplinary perspectives.
