Call for Submissions

Faith and Economics will publish a series of essays this fall by economists late in their careers who have made a sustained contribution to the project of connecting the Christian tradition to the work of economists. They will be reflecting on the readings and other influences that were foundational to their work.

In the Spring issue Faith and Economics would like to publish a complementary group of essays by Christian economists who are (roughly) still in the first half of their careers. Essays should reflect on the connection between the Christian tradition and the discipline of economics in some of the following ways:

  • What has been influential and helpful to you?
  • What potentially worthwhile things have been missing?
  • How would you want the conversation about economics and the Christian tradition to be shaped?
  • What are emerging fruitful areas for further work?
  • What would be most helpful to you and your peers as a Christian scholar?
  • What conversations would you like to see initiated among Christian economists?

Please consider submitting an essay for review—roughly 3-5 pages—by April 1, 2018. If you’d like to discuss the possibility, contact the executive editor, Kurt Schaefer, at
