Christian Scholar’s Review

A Quarterly Interdisciplinary Academic Journal


Established in 1970, Christian Scholar’s Review is a medium for communication among Christians who have been called to an academic vocation. Its primary objective is the publication of peer-reviewed scholarship and research, within and across the disciplines, that advances the integration of faith and learning and contributes to a broader and more unified understanding of the nature of creation, culture, and vocation and the responsibilities of those whom God has created. It also provides a forum for discussion of pedagogical and theoretical issues related to Christian higher education. It invites contributions from Christian scholars of all historic traditions, and from others sympathetic to the task of religiously-informed scholarship, that advance the work of Christian academic communities and enhance mutual understanding with other religious and academic communities.

The Christian Scholar’s Review publishes original manuscripts reflecting high standards of scholarship that align with the goals of its mission. Authors can read more about guidelines for submission by clicking the link directly below. Guidelines for book reviews follow.
