Professor Joseph Mangina
Professor Joseph Mangina has been named the editor-designate of the journal Pro Ecclesia: A Journal of Catholic and Evangelical Theology, succeeding Professor Reinhard Huetter of DukeUniversityDivinitySchool. Dr. Huetter will remain on the journal as an associate editor.
Founded by Lutheran theologians Carl Braaten and Robert Jenson, and published under the aegis of the Center for Catholic and Evangelical Theology, Pro Ecclesia—the name means “for the Church”—tries to embody the spirit of ressourcement or going “back to the sources” of Scripture and Christian tradition. According to its mission statement, the journal seeks
... to give contemporary expression to the one apostolic faith and its classical traditions, working for and manifesting the church’s unity by research, theological construction, and free exchange of opinion. Members of its advisory council represent communities committed to the authority of Holy Scripture, ecumenical dogmatic teaching, and the structural continuity of the church and are themselves dedicated to maintaining and invigorating these commitments. The journal publishes biblical, liturgical, historical, and doctrinal articles that promote or illumine its purposes.
Professor Mangina will appear on the masthead as co-editor throughout 2008, and will assume full responsibilities as editor starting with the first issue of 2009.
