As we enter the Passion Week and look to Resurrection Sunday, we have the Journal of the Creation Society (JCTS) in typesetting stage with a goal to having it off to the printer as soon as possible. Keep an eye out for future announcements. This inaugural issue almost fills a full-sized book and will make a significant contribution to biblical creation studies, especially with its interdisciplinary nature.
The newly-minted Creation Theology Society (CTS) requests the honor of your contribution to the 2021 Origins Conference to be held July 28–31. Please see more details about the restructured meetings under Conferences. Any topics dealing with the text, philology, hermeneutics, theology, and apologetics of Genesis 1–11 and any other texts dealing with primeval history will be gladly accepted for peer review. Accepted conference papers may then be submitted to be reviewed for publication in the inaugural issue of the Journal of Creation Theology and Science (Series A). The special topic for this year’s annual Interdisciplinary Themed Session is “The Fountains of the Great Deep and the Windows of the Heavens in the Genesis Flood Narrative.” This interdisciplinary session of the conference will comprise two invited papers dealing with the biblical text, an invited paper providing a historical review of the geological/geophysical mechanisms proposed for initiating the Flood, and a panel discussion. The submission of papers related specifically to this topic are encouraged as we seek to move research forward at this year’s conference and in the journal.
The style of the papers must conform to the most recent edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Submissions shall be made in Times New Roman 12 pt. font, double-spaced, and shall include an abstract (under 300 words), keywords, and bibliography. The new, extended deadline for submission is May 3, 2021. Questions should be directed to the executive editor of CTS at email@example.com. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
