About The Princeton Theological Review
Our Mission Statement
“The Princeton Theological Review is an annual, student-run journal that exists to serve students of Princeton Theological Seminary as well as the wider theological community. It is committed to engaging theological issues in ways that are grounded in Scripture, centered on Jesus Christ, formed by the work of the Holy Spirit, and oriented toward the historic and contemporary reflections of the church. Through a free and open exchange of ideas, Princeton Theological Review will provide a resource that challenges, informs, and equips readers to become more effective and faithful witnesses to the Lord Jesus Christ.”
The Princeton theologian Charles Hodge founded the Princeton Theological Review in the first half of the 19th century. Along with other professional theologians, Hodge fashioned it into what became the premier theological journal this side of the Atlantic. Unfortunately, the Wall Street Crash of 1929, together with a seminary split that same year, led Princeton Theological Seminary to discontinue the publication of the Princeton Theological Review. With the help of students, faculty, and alumni/ae of the Seminary, the Princeton Theological Review was revived in the mid-1990s. After another brief hiatus in the mid-2010s, the Princeton Theological Review was revived again in the 2014-2015 academic year.
