“The Society of Christian Philosophers was organized in 1978 to promote fellowship among Christian Philosophers and to stimulate study and discussion of issues which arise from their Christian and philosophical commitments.” The Society publishes an excellent peer-reviewed journal called Faith and Philosophy; regrettably, this journal is not available electronically on the Web.
