Summer edition of SEI Journal published

July 5, 2022

The Summer edition of the Scottish Episcopal Institute Journal offers three articles on theology and vocation with reference to Scotland.

Ann Loades CBE kicks off with the text of her Smith Lecture 2022, a Lecture taking its name from the famous Smith Sisters of Ayrshire, ‘From Exception to Norm? Women in Theology’.

Second, Ian Barcroft follows with ‘Developing a Critical Realist Methodology for a Vocational Discernment Process’ as part of the Scottish Episcopal Church’s effort to foster the discernment of vocations.

Third, Michael Hull takes a look at theological education vis-à-vis the Scottish Ordinal 1984 in ‘Catholic Doctrine: The Crux of a Theological Education in the Scottish Episcopal Church’. There are also fine book reviews.

The Spring edition on the theme of the Saint Andrew Declaration can be read here.
