For more than fifty years, Christianity and Literature has served as the primary public face of the Conference on Christianity and Literature; it is a member of CELJ, the Council of Editors of Learned Journals. In the past two decades, under the leadership of, first, Robert Snyder and, now, Paul Contino and Maire Mullins, it has won awards for its scholarly excellence. Each issue of the journal contains peer-reviewed scholarly articles, book reviews, poetry, and news and announcements of interest to CCL members.
Essay submissions are accepted electronically at email@example.com, while poetry submissions should be sent in hard copy to Poetry Editor Peter Cooley. Please access C&L's complete Submission Guidelines for detailed instructions.
NEW AND UPCOMING ISSUES
We eagerly await the publication of the Summer 2014 issue, which will offer a series of reflections on the relationship between Christianity and contemporary literature. In response to Paul Elie's provocative New York Times Book Review essay on this subject, contributing essayists will discuss works by Alice McDermott, Ian McEwan, Paul Harding, Cormac McCarthy, and Flannery O'Connor.
Future issues will feature outstanding scholarship and writing on the work of Chaucer, Walker Percy, David Foster Wallace, Jean Rotrou, and Fyodor Dostoevsky. And, as always, each issue will include new poetry and numerous timely book reviews.
Read excerpts from the book, Imago Dei, featuring poetry from 60 years of Christianity and Literature.
