In the Spring 2019 issue of Skylight, you'll meet two Newhall student scholars who are bringing an interreligious approach to Women's Studies at the GTU, read a profile of alum of the year Greg Sterling, and learn about our innovative Sustainability 360 Initiative. Plus, find out about a new GTU journal and an upcoming sacred music festival, and get news updates from our centers, schools, and art galleries. (Download a PDF of the full issue, or see individual article files below.)
SKYLIGHT magazine highlights the people, programs, and progress of the Graduate Theological Union. In Fall 2017, we gave our GTU magazine (formerly known as CURRENTS) a new name and a fresh design, and expanded the content so we could share even more of the good news about what's happening at the GTU. Below you can check out the online edition of the latest issue (and an archive of other recent issues).
Theology and Science
Theology and Science is the quarterly, peer-reviewed journal of The Center for Theology and the Natural Sciences (CTNS) at the Graduate Theological Union.

Berkeley Journal of Religion and Theology
Established in 2015 by GTU doctoral students in coordination with the dean’s office, the Berkeley Journal of Religion and Theology (BJRT) is a diverse forum for the type of cutting-edge scholarship in religious studies, philosophy, and theology that characterizes the GTU. Visit the journal’s website at bjrt.gtu.edu to review past editions online, and find out how you can contribute. BJRT welcomes articles and book reviews from GTU alumni, students, and faculty, as well as other scholars who share the GTU’s commitment to bring the wisdom or the world’s religions to the critical challenges facing us today.
Teaching Theology & Religion
Beginning in 2020, the GTU will oversee the publication of the quarterly, peer-reviewed journal Teaching Theology & Religion. The journal’s content will focus on teaching methods that are interreligious, interdisciplinary, international, and feature integrated modalities (technology). In addition to continuing to longer articles on various pedagogical issues, book reviews, and “In the Classroom” essays about concrete practices, the revised journal will include a new section reviewing developments in learning technology. Online access to the journal and its back issues (published under the Wabash Center’s oversight through the end of 2019) can be found here.
In preparation for the first issue of Teaching Theology & Religion under GTU leadership, the editors are seeking essays exploring questions related to the theme of “Interreligious Pedagogy in the Twenty-First Century.” The deadline for completed manuscripts for Volume 23, number 1, has been extended to November 1, 2019. Read the full call for papers here. For more information, contact coeditors Kyle Schiefelbein-Guerrero and Rebecca Esterson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
