Associate professor of psychiatry and clinical psychologist in the School of Medicine, William G. Roth, PsyD, has been appointed to the board of editorial consultants for a newly launched journal, The Journal of Spiritual Formation and Soul Care.

“The purpose of the journal is to advance the discussion of the theory and practice of Christian formation and soul care,” says Dr. Roth, “for the sake of the educational ministries of the church, Christian education, and other para-church organizations through scholarly publications that are rooted in Biblical exegesis, systematic theology, the history of Christian spirituality, philosophical analysis, psychological theory/ research, spiritual theology, and Christian experience.”

Published twice a year by the Talbot School of Theology Institute for Spiritual Formation, the major intent of this peer-reviewed journal is to place before the Christian community writing that will foster the field of spiritual formation and soul care as has been understood and developed within historic Christianity.

The need, nature, and practical components of spiritual transformation in Christ will be addressed in ways that will keep interested subscribers current on important topics in this rapidly expanding field of Christian spiritual formation by featuring contributions from formative thinkers like Dallas Willard and James M. Houston, who have contributed articles to the inaugural issue.

Published twice a year (fall and spring), the annual journal subscription rate is $30 per year in the United States.

Students may subscribe for $20 with proof of full-time student status. Subscriptions may be purchased at the subscriptions office of Biola University, (562) 944-0351, extension 5321, or by e-mail at sfjsubscriptions@biola.edu.
