ORLANDO, Fla. – The inaugural issue of Reformed Faith & Practice: The Journal of Reformed Theological Seminary was launched on Tuesday, May 31, 2016 and can be accessed at journal.rts.edu.
This is a major milestone for the seminary as this year it celebrates its 50th anniversary. For years RTS has published a popular magazine, Ministry and Leadership. This is the first time in RTS history that it has produced a theological journal.
The new journal will be published three times a year and distributed electronically without charge. Each issue will contain articles, interviews, book reviews, and occasional tastes of campus community life – excerpts from lectures, chapel presentations, and other seminary conversations that may be on interest to the broader community. The journal’s editorial board will be made up of the academic deans at the various RTS campuses.
The RF&P will encourage theological reflection with a particular view toward the well-being of evangelical and Reformed churches. The journal will reflect the academic excellence of the RTS faculty, while aiming to help those in pastoral ministry. It will present articles that are biblical and theological, thus providing ministry resources for leaders of the church. It will also aim to serve the alumni of Reformed Theological Seminary as an on-going source of continuing education. You may subscribe to receive an email notification of each issue by signing up at www.rts.edu/subscription/publications.aspx.
Reformed Theological Seminary has campuses in Atlanta, Charlotte, Houston, Jackson, Memphis, New York City, Orlando, Washington, D.C., and Global. John R. Muether, Dean of Libraries and Professor of Church History at the Orlando campus, is the editor of RF&P. Queries about the journal can be sent to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
