Journal "Direction": Toward Anabaptist Political Theology

The Spring 2009 issue of the journal "Direction: A Mennonite Brethren Forum" was themed "Toward Anabaptist Political Theology".

Six months after publication of the printed journal, the full-text articles have now become available to read online free of charge:


Articles include "An Anabaptist-Mennonite Political Theology: Theological Presuppositions" (A. James Reimer, formerly Conrad Grebel University College); "Exousiology and Torah: A Suggestion for Mennonite Political Theology with Reference to the Reimer-Yoder Divide" (Jodie Boyer Hatlem, University of Toronto, and Douglas Johnson Hatlem, pastor); "Messianic Political Theology: Yoder contra Redekop" (Travis P. [sic] Kroeker, McMaster University); "A Response to P. Travis Kroeker's 'Messianic Political Theology: Yoder contra Redekop'" (John H. Redekop, Trinity Western University/Wilfrid Laurier University).

The journal's self-description: "Direction journal was begun in 1972 as a partnership among four Mennonite Brethren educational institutions in Canada and the US. Eventually two additional schools joined the group, and the US and Canadian Mennonite Brethren Conferences also provide support. [...] Neither a purely academic journal nor a denominational magazine, Direction highlights the interdependence of Christian reflection and mission."
