The editors of Political Theology are very sorry to announce that for personal reasons Tim Simpson has decided to step down from his role as editor of the journal on November 1. The journal and editorial team have benefited enormously from Tim’s energy and political commitment, as well as his academic judgement. Tim is modest but his contribution has been immense. It is no exaggeration to say that he has contributed significantly to the discipline of political theology. We are pleased to say that Tim will continue as an emeritus editor but we want to say thank you so very much to Tim for his ten years of work so far.
