Basic Information

Stellenbosch Theological Journal (STJ) – previously known as the Dutch Reformed Theological Journal (NGTT) – is a multilingual, South–African theological journal that hosts high–quality academic contributions. The journal has roots in the Reformed tradition that stretch back to the 19th century.

The journal aims to serve academy, church and society with high–quality scholarly contributions. The journal supports theological scholarship that engages with living traditions through responsible Biblical interpretation, a critical engagement with the past, ecumenicity, a practical–theological focus and a unique emphasis on the public character of theological reflection.
Hosted at the Faculty of Theology at Stellenbosch University, STJ is serious about being situated in Southern Africa and the African continent while simultaneously being aware of the global challenges for theology today.

STJ publishes 2 parallel issues per year, the 1st issue focusing on General articles and the 2nd issue focusing on Practical Theology. The articles within the issues are added to the webpage as they are approved.

Its abbreviated key title is Stellenbosch theol. j. (Online).
