Symposiums

A communal network of theological blogs and podcasts that explores the depths of the Christian tradition and its implications for human flourishing.

Every so often we host a symposia on a given topic. This is a time when we gather and publish essays on a certain book, theme, or person, and publish them as a collection. In the past, we have done symposia on Gollwitzer, XYZ Topic, and other things. To be the first to know about other symposia that we’re hosting in the future, follow us online:
