Religious Studies and Theology is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes thoughtful original research of an interdisciplinary nature with significance to the various inter-related fields of Religious Studies and Theology. For over thirty-five years, Religious Studies and Theology has played a major role in bringing a Western Canadian perspective to contemporary debates. Its aim is to disseminate scholarly insight that reflects and contributes to positive, fruitful action in the world.

Religious Studies and Theology welcomes traditional scholarly commentary in critical essay format that engages both disciplinary and educated cross-sectoral readers. International contributors from many disciplines explore understandings of the varied and complex phenomenon of religion and spirituality in the contemporary world. The journal gives special attention to studies on religion and religious communities in Canada, with regard to the place of this nation in our inter-connected global community.

A unique section of the journal is dedicated to reflection on professional issues and each journal issue includes book reviews and/or reviews of digital media or film.
