Epiphany Association

The Journal of Formation Science, Anthropology, and Theology


An annual publication of the Epiphany Association's advanced study program in formative spirituality. Its aim is to prepare scholars, teachers, and practitioners in this new field, originally initiated by Adrian van Kaam. His ecumenical theology of the ongoing transformation of life and world, as taught in the Epiphany Certification Program (ECP), is rooted in the scriptures, in ecclesial formation doctrines, and in the classics of experiential human and Christian formation theology. His unique approach to formation theology includes the pre- and prototheological disciplines of experiential formation science and formation anthropology. They enable students in our programs as well as our readers to clarify and synthesize the compatible classical wisdom of the transcendent formation efforts of humanity over the ages. The goal of our ecumenical approach is to serve respectfully the formative, reformative, and transformative healing of wounded cosmos and humanity. The Epiphany Association is dedicated, therefore, to fostering the transformation of life and world in fidelity to each person's unique communal life call as disclosed by the mystery over a lifetime.
