Welcome to Your Source for Ongoing Formation

Dear Chicago Studies Subscriber,

At the end of 2016, Chicago Studies will cease being a print publication. In 2017, Chicago Studies will become a free, online theological journal, with the same quality of content you have come to expect. To all of the dedicated supporters and subscribers of Chicago Studies, I thank you for your support over these past 55 years of publishing. We encourage you to continue to seek out current and future issues of Chicago Studies online at chicagostudies.org 

Thank you and may God bless you,

Michael JK Fuller, Editor

Note: For those of you who will have an unfulfilled subscription end of 2016, credits will be issued to you.

CHICAGO STUDIES is a theological journal for those serving in parish ministry.

While sacrificing nothing in scholarship or scope, CHICAGO STUDIES is always written with the parish minister in mind. From its inception, CHICAGO STUDIES has had this singular goal to provide high quality continuing theological development for parish ministers.

At CHICAGO STUDIES our goal is to provide a venue to bring some of the best thinking about theology to priests, deacons, directors of religious education, pastoral associates, chaplains, educators, and thoughtful Christians in search of ongoing intellectual formation that will positively affect their ministry and faith life.
