European Journal of Theology

The European Journal of Theology (EJT, founded in 1992) is a scholarly evangelical journal, exploring the faith once delivered to the saints, the Gospel, in response to the rapid transformations in post-Christian Europe. EJT is published by the Fellowship of European Evangelical Theologians, whose aim is the innovation of Christianity in Europe through the promotion and encouragement of the study of evangelical theology. EJT is offered as a service to the evangelical theological community and to the wider church.

Aims and scope

The European Journal of Theology welcomes articles on any area of theology by evangelical theologians. It especially encourages submissions by European authors working in Europe, more specifically those outside the Anglo-Saxon and German regions.

All articles are double-blind peer-reviewed and each issue contains numerous book reviews. The intended readers are teachers in theological schools, other theologians, ministers and students.
