One of the best known organs of research at Vidyajyoti College of Theology is its Vidyajyoti Journal of Theological Reflection (VJTR). This monthly publication reaches nearly 4000 subscribers all over the world, including most theological colleges of English-speaking countries. It covers areas of Christian theology and service, inter-religious dialogue, Indian theology, social concerns, and trends significant for religion in the modern times. The Journal was started in 1938 with the title The Clergy Monthly. In 1975 it assumed the present title. It opens its pages to scholars from all over India that want to publish in the areas of concern for the journal.

We would like to address (the Journal) to all those who fulfill a ‘ministry’ in the Church, and who exercise responsibility and leadership in the community, whether they belong to the clergy, the Religious or the Laity.  The Journal is at their service.  It will offer them a forum where they can share experiences, discuss problems, reflect over their Christian life of witness and service today in India.  It will keep them informed of developments in other local Churches and in the universal Church.  It will mediate to them the ministry of Indian theologians in their work pf prophetic and critical reflection.

Our purpose is:

VIDYAJYOTI will seek to participate in and promote the search for Indian ways of worship, witness and life and the expression of an Indian theology.  Aware of the pluralistic nature of this search it will still offer a variety of expression respecting the freedom of creative theological and pastoral research within the parameters of the Gospel and of the Christian faith.  Hence different points of view may be expressed in the Journal, not necessarily agreeing with those of the editors, in the measure in which they may contribute ‘to build up the body of Christ and so we all come together to that oneness in our faith and in our knowledge of the Son of God, (and) become mature people reaching to the very height of Christ’s full stature’ (Eph 4:12-13).
