From January 22-25, 2015, a diverse group of scholars and faith leaders will offer strategies for developing a more just economy and instill the confidence to take action for social change at Trinity Institute’s 44th National Theological Conference, “Creating Common Good: A Practical Conference on Economic Equality.”

In keeping with the theme, Trinity Institute is holding an essay competition to inspire theological scholars to examine the post-2008 economic context and offer solutions about how best to pursue God’s promise of abundant life against the backdrop of the global financial crisis. Essays should envision alternatives to the status quo that are consistent with scripture, theological traditions, and contemporary understandings of human flourishing.

Entries should answer some aspect of the following three questions: (1) When does economic inequality become sinful?; (2) How can theological and biblical sources help turn the economy toward the common good?; and (3) What individual and community practices could be created to confront the sin of inequality and cultivate theological visions of the common good?

The first-place prize is a $10,000 award, with essay publication in the Anglican Theological Review and a public lecture at Trinity Wall Street. Two runner-ups will receive prizes of $2,500 each.

Entries must be original, unpublished work, not exceeding 6,500 words in length including footnotes, accompanied by a 100-150 word précis and brief author’s biographical statement for publication purposes. Style sheet information may be found at:

Manuscripts must be submitted before July 1, 2015 by email attachment in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format to Jackie Winter at: Please include “Trinity Essay Competition” in the subject line. Prizes will be announced on September 1, 2015.
