The Kenarchy Journal

March 29, 2021

The second volume of the new applied academic online resource The Kenarchy Journal has just been published and can be accessed here. A brief introduction for those new to the journal:

Kenarchy is a newly constructed word signifying an innovative, inclusive reconfiguration of Jesus’ politics of love. It is derived from ken(osis): emptying out sovereign power and replacing it with a love measured by readiness to die for the other, even one’s enemy, and archy: a way of ordering or relating in social space. It has been articulated over the last 15 years by a growing network of theologians and activists around original work begun with and on behalf of them by political theologian Roger Haydon Mitchell. (See Discovering Kenarchy: Contemporary Resources for the Politics of Love. Roger Haydon Mitchell and Julie Tomlin Arram eds. Wipf & Stock, 2014). While based unapologetically in the Jesus story as found in the four gospels of the Christian scriptures, and drawing on the theology of trinity and incarnation, it configures an inclusive politics of love as a gift to people of all faiths and none.

Please be encouraged to interface with the journal via the Forum page and also consider contributing articles. They are currently inviting submissions to Volume Three around the central theme of the theology of nations and their healing.
