Overview

American Theological Inquiry (ATI) reaches thousands of Christian scholars, clergy, and other interested parties, primarily in the US and UK The journal was formed in 2007 by Gannon Murphy (PhD theology, Univ. Wales, Lampeter; Presbyterian/Reformed) and Stephen Patrick (PhD philosophy, Univ. Illinois; Eastern Orthodox) to open up space for Christian scholars who affirm the ecumenical creeds to contribute research throughout the broader Christian scholarly community in the US and the West.

The purpose of ATI is to provide an intertradition forum for scholars who affirm the historic ecumenical creeds of Christendom to constructively communicate contemporary theologies, developments, ideas, commentaries, and insights pertaining to theology, culture, and history toward reforming and elevating Western Christianity. ATI seeks a critical function as much or more so as a quasi-ecumenical one. The purpose is not to erase or weaken the distinctives of the various ecclesial traditions, but to widen the dialogue and increase intertradition understanding while mutually affirming Christ’s power to transform culture and the importance of strengthening Western Christianity with special reference to her historic, creedal roots.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture citations link directly to English translations, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
