Archbishop Peter Jensen will be the new editor of Churchman
After 35 years as the editor of Churchman, Professor Gerald Bray has decided to retire from the role at the end of 2018. We are very sorry to see Gerald hang up his boots, after sterling service over half a lifetime and nearly 140 entertaining, provocative, stimulating editorials. Over the decades he has established Churchman as the leading international journal for Anglican Evangelical theology, and we owe him a huge debt. Gerald continues to teach across the globe, and to publish at a prodigious rate. Keep your eyes open for his forthcoming books, including Doing Theology with the Reformers, and a theological commentary on the Pastoral Epistles. In his honour, Church Society has launched the annual Gerald Bray Essay Prize, to encourage first-time authors to write good theology, and the winning essays will be published in Churchman.
We are delighted to announce that the new editor of Churchman, from January 2019, is Archbishop Peter Jensen. Peter is already well-known to many as a global Anglican Evangelical leader and as the first general secretary of the GAFCON movement (a baton he hands on to Archbishop Ben Kwashi of Jos, Nigeria, at Christmas). Previously Peter served as Principal of Moore Theological College, and then Archbishop of Sydney. He is a frequent visitor to the UK, speaking on many platforms such as the recent ReNew conference in Leeds. We look forward to Peter’s leadership of Churchman, as the journal aims to go from strength to strength, in providing robust Evangelical theology to resource Anglican churches in the UK and across the world.
