Our academic research and public engagement programs seek to stimulate, refine, and express Christian scholarship through collaborative interdisciplinary research, in order to promote an understanding of spiritual, philosophical, scientific, and theological inquiry among scholars, religious leaders, and laypeople. CCT’s values and emphases focus on theological imagination, creativity, principled pluralism, and the intersection of perspectives from different cultural sectors, academic disciplines, denominations, and backgrounds.
Our founding vision maintains a commitment to religious and theological inquiry that celebrates Christian ecumenism in the spirit of humility, wonder, open-mindedness, practical wisdom, and public engagement.
We are committed to supporting research and resource development on central questions of human well-being and flourishing from distinctively Christian scholarly perspectives. We share an abiding commitment to the study of ideas that shape and support freedom, dignity, and broad societal well-being; we encourage free and constructive research among our scholars and contributors; and we are devoted to the ultimate goal of influencing culture with life-giving and enriching Christian wisdom for public audiences.
