New SEI Journal looks at theology of safeguarding

March 24, 2021

The Spring issue of the Scottish Episcopal Institute Journal is now available and can be accessed here.

The new edition is a thematic one that addresses the theology of safeguarding from a number of perspectives.

“Its aim is to allow a second word on this topic which is neither the first nor the last,” says The Rev Dr Michael Hull, on behalf of the editorial board of the SEI Journal.

“Not everything said by one author will command the assent of all. This issue proffers a useful exchange of ideas from well-known theologians and church leaders across the UK: Oliver O’Donovan, Ann Loades, David Jasper, Jeremy Worthen, Nicola Price-Tebbutt and Mark W. Elliott.

“Their topics and discussions are but a sample of those that arise in a consideration of the theology of safeguarding and signal the need for further theological reflection in this vital area of the church’s ministry and mission.”

The Journal is a vehicle for debate on current issues in the Anglican Communion and beyond. It invites dialogue on what it means to think as an Episcopalian in Scotland in the twenty-first century, and its independent views do not necessarily reflect the opinions, beliefs and viewpoints of the SEC or the SEI.
