About Us

@ this point: theological investigations in church and culture

On behalf of the faculty of Columbia Theological Seminary, we welcome you to @ this point. This unique journal is a ministry—one that we offer especially to adult church members who are hungry for thoughtful and provocative resources to stimulate their growth in Christ.

To be published twice a year, @ this point is subscription-free and is available only online (ISSN 1932-698X). We invite you to sign up for automatic delivery to your e-mail box. Each issue will focus on a particular topic seen through the lenses of a variety of theological disciplines. Lead articles, responses, and replies, as well as discussion-starters and an annotated list of resources for further research and reflection will be written by scholars whose concern for the church is that it continue to “be transformed by the renewing of your minds” (Romans 12:2).

We began @ this point because we are concerned about the quality of conversation in the church. Our hope is that our journal will model thoughtful and charitable disagreement, as we all seek wisdom, understanding, and social relevance in today’s world.
