Journal Of Theological Education

Professor giving a lecture

Didaktikos is a journal written by professors, for professors, who teach in biblical, theological, and related disciplines and who help train pastors and other ministry leaders. Published four times a year by Faithlife, the maker of Logos Bible Software, the journal provides a forum for encouraging and supporting professors in their academic calling and personal ministries.

The journal’s content focuses on the vocation of teaching theology, biblical studies, and related disciplines, particularly at the graduate level and in service to the church. Articles address trends in contemporary scholarship, pedagogy (classroom and online), career development, faculty matters and ethics, and ministry-related issues.

The journal’s name comes from 2 Timothy 2:24: But it is necessary that a servant of the Lord not be quarrelsome but be gentle to all, skilled in teaching (διδακτικός), patient even in the midst of evil.

Didaktikos is mailed free of charge to theological faculty in the United States and Canada.
