This series promotes work at the interface of theology and philosophy, across all philosophical traditions and all religions. With a critical focus on the foundations of both theology and philosophy, it attempts to foreground and explore their inter-relationship, showcasing examples of constructive engagement between the two. It publishes works in philosophical theology, philosophy of religion, and studies that engage sacred texts in theological-philosophical dialogue.

Craig Bartholomew, is the H Evan Runner Professor of Philosophy and Professor of Religion and Theology at Redeemer University College in Ancaster, Ontario. He is also the principal of The Paideia Centre for Public Theology. Professor Bartholomew is the author and editor of many books, most recently Christian Philosophy: A Narrative and Systematic Introduction (co-authored with Michael Goheen). For over a decade he has led The Scripture and Hermeneutics Seminar which has published nine volumes. He has a long-standing interest in hermeneutics and the relationship between theology and philosophy informed by deep engagement with the biblical text.

Alan Mittleman is Professor of Modern Jewish Thought at the Jewish Theological Seminary in New York City. He is the author of five books, most recently A Short History of Jewish Ethics. He works at the interface of Jewish philosophy with political theory, ethics, and metaphysics. His forthcoming book is Human Nature & Jewish Thought. It is a study of normative Jewish understandings of being human in dialogue with contemporary neuroscience and evolutionary biology.

Meena Sharify-Funk is an Associate Professor for the Religion and Culture Department at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada. She specializes in Islamic studies with a focus on contemporary Muslim thought and identity and has written and presented a number of articles and papers on women and Islam, Islamic hermeneutics and the role of cultural and religious factors in peacemaking. She is the author of Encountering the Transnational: Women, Islam and the Politics of Interpretation (2008); and co-editor of Contemporary Islam: Dynamic, Not Static (2006) and Cultural Diversity and Islam (2003).
