The Analytic Theology Project
The Analytic Theology Project (2010-2014) ($2.5 million) was a multi-national four-year endeavor that funded initiatives aimed at encouraging fruitful scholarly conversation among analytic philosophers and theologians. It stimulated enthusiasm among faculty, students, and budding scholars for interdisciplinary exchange between the fields of theology and philosophy of religion. Additionally, it aided the cross-fertilization of ideas, research, and methods between analytic philosophers of religion and historical, systematic, and Biblical theologians.

Originally conceived and funded by the Analytic Theology Project, two prominent events in the field continue annually:
