Announcing Political Theology 16.5

The September 2015 issue of our journal, Political Theology, is now online. This issue includes three fine articles spanning historical and contemporary issues in political theology, from Augustine’s City of God to natural law to a theological analysis of the concept of vulnerability. This issue’s book reviews cover a range of topics on theoretical and practical global problems in the field of political theology.

Anna Rowlands’s guest editorial on Laudato si’ will appear here on the blog tomorrow.
