Offerings: A Journal of Practical Theology and Spirituality, an endeavor of the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, Texas, publishes innovative research at the disciplinary intersection between Practical Theology and Spirituality. Situated in the unique social location of South Texas, within the diverse and overlapping Spanish and English speaking cultures and contexts, Offerings is committed to publishing academic works that illuminate and give meaning to the spiritual life lived in the particularities of the every day. By featuring both established and emerging scholars, Offerings will provide a forum for an engaging dialogue among readers and authors that is rooted in the Christian traditions and gives voice to rich and wide-ranging expressions of human life, particularly the experiences of historically excluded and underrepresented peoples and communities.
Offerings will become a biannual publication and will be managed, produced, and distributed by Herder & Herder (H&H), the academic publishing arm of The Crossroad Publishing Company.
Submission, Subscription, and Indexing Policy
All submissions to the journal will undergo “double-blind” peer review. Subscriptions for individuals and institutions will be approximately $30 and $60 per year respectively, and the journal will be electronically indexed.
Editorial and Advisory Board
Fr. Ron Rolheiser, President of the new Editorial Board of the journal, in conjunction with the journal’s new Editor, Dr. Greg Zuschlag, is inviting senior and emerging scholars to join either the Editorial Board or Advisory Board to assist in peer reviews, article and book review acquisitions, and in providing guidance on the direction of the journal. Faculty teaching in and affiliated with OST’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Spirituality will be integral to the editorial process.
We hope you are excited about the new changes and direction of the journal. If you have any questions, feel free to email Dr. Greg Zuschlag, the new Editor of Offerings.
