The Vision

The vision of DJK Institute’s Monograph Series on Public Theology is to demonstrate theological reflection with scholarship and pastoral application for believers living faithfully in a secular age.

The Mission

The mission is to produce a series of three books (one, a collection of essays on Biblical-theological responses to selected issues facing Western society in the “Secular Age;” two, a scholarly treatise on the meaning, value, and practice of Public Theology as a subdivision in the theological encyclopedia, and three, a final installment of essays on Present Threats Facing Christian Shepherds.


  • The framework allows for twelve to fifteen chapters in a book and a book released over three years; thus, an in-depth three-year study for your church, small group, or reading club.
  • Written by leading Christian scholars and practitioners in the field. The majority of authors are from the Presbyterian and Reformed Christian communities. Each book, however, will include a chapter from a Christian from another branch of the Church catholic.
  • Each installment in the series includes a small group study
  • Authors are committed to the primacy of Scripture
  • Each installment in the series includes multiple resources for further research and study.
  • Perfect for college and seminary courses in missiology, sociology, religious studies, evangelism, and history.
  • Accessibly first-class scholarship for your church or school.
