About the Center for Christian Thought

Biola University's Center for Christian Thought is a forum where leading Christian thinkers from around the world gather to research and discuss issues of significance to the academy, the church, and the broader culture.

The Center offers scholars from a variety of Christian perspectives a unique opportunity to work collaboratively on a selected theme. Together, they develop their ideas, refine their thinking, and examine important cultural issues in a way that is informed by Scripture. Ultimately, the collaborative work will result in scholarly and popular-level materials, providing the broader culture with thoughtful and carefully articulated Christian perspectives on current events, ethical concerns, and social trends.


The Center focuses on yearly themes of contemporary significance, which have bearing on both academic and popular issues. 


The Center networks with first-rate scholars—experts in their fields—to produce research and facilitate discussion around our themes.


The Center produces popular-level media related our themes, translating and applying big ideas into relevant resources.

Biola University, an institution with its own particular spiritual, theological and intellectual heritage and commitments, endeavors here to engage a broad range of Christian perspectives on perennial questions. CCT scholars may present positions and make claims that are at points at variance with Biola's theological culture and statements.
