June 4, 2014—Columbia Theological Seminary has a unique online journal called @ this point. This is published especially for adult church members who are hungry for thoughtful and provocative resources to stimulate their growth in Christ. These may be used for class or individual study.
@ this point is published twice a year subscription-free and is available only online. You may even sign up for automatic delivery to your e-mail box. Each issue focuses 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,” said editor Dr. Mark Douglas, Professor of Christian Ethics.
You may find the most recent edition titled Dividing the Kingdom: the Church and the 2016 Election. The main article is by Dr. Brennan Breed on “Shifting Cultures” with responses from several faculty and friends of Columbia Theological Seminary. Other editions may be found in the archives discussing a wide variety of topics such as: biblical interpretation, social media, resilience, civility, and emotions.
