Scholars have developed a number of criteria to inform an accurate reconstruction of the historical Jesus. Among Ehrman’s preferred methods are independent attestation and the principle of dissimilarity.
Why We Publish
We, the students of the Augustine Collective, publish journals of Christian thought because we believe the Christian Gospel encompasses the whole of life itself; that the brokenness of this world is mirrored in the brokenness of God on the cross; and that the answer to our brokenness is found only in the Resurrection. So we endeavor to think rigorously, question honestly, and invite all to join us in the pursuit of truth and human flourishing.
Attend Our Retreat
Each year over 120 student editors and writers from 20+ universities gather in Boston for a weekend of equipping, intellectual exchange, and friendship. Past keynote speakers have included Andy Crouch, Michael Lindsay, John Lennox, and James K.A. Smith. If you’re running a Christian journal or interested in starting one, we’d love for you to join us!
Start a Journal
Interested in starting a journal of Christian thought on your campus but don’t know how? You’ve come to the right place! For the past ten years we’ve been learning from one another, compiling best practices, and gathering a team of committed coaches and mentors. As a student-led movement, we know what it’s like to start from scratch. Get in touch and we’ll walk you through the nuts and bolts and introduce you to the thinkers and writers who inspire us.
The Augustine Collective is a student-led network of Christian journals on college campuses.
Committed to the premise that faith and reason belong together, the journals seek to reinvigorate thoughtful conversation about faith on campus. Meet the Journals »
