We do not charge submission fee, and authors will receive one complimentary copy of the journal.

While myths are stories shared by a group that are a part of their cultural identity, there is no completely satisfactory definition of the term. Her poem, “To Lament a Nation’s Lost Soul,” appeared in Prayers for the New Social Awakening (Westminster, 2008). This is an especially easy connection to make for a journalist. They therefore present what he calls a Lilliputian challenge to unguided Darwinism; if he is right, they present it with a Gargantuan challenge as well.

Many people are perplexed and see as problematic that, if God exists, God does not make his existence sufficiently clear and available.

Pinn Edited by two recognized scholars of African-American religion and culture, this reader, the first of its kind, provides the essential texts for an important and emerging field of study – religion and hip hop. Many master’s programs in religious studies can be completed in two years of full-time study, but program length varies depending on the university. I have also taught courses in biblical hermeneutics, exegesis, and major world religions. Perhaps the reduction test offers a necessary condition of A's being a defeater for B for S; it is also sufficient only if religious beliefs don't have warrant or positive epistemic status in the basic way, and only if they don't acquire warrant or positive epistemic status from a source other than those that confer that status on scientific beliefs.
