About St Mark's Review

St Mark’s Review has been a leading journal of Christian thought and opinion since 1955. The Review aims at lively, responsible and relevant discussions of matters that of importance to the Christian community in Australia and for the life of our society.

Each issue of the Review is dedicated to a specific theme and articles are commissioned to address that theme.

Most articles featured in the Review are intended for anyone with a broad interest in theological questions and religious questions of contemporary significance. Specialists will also find the fruits of fresh thinking from a community of scholars determined to engage in dialogue with both the Church and the world.

St Mark's Review is also available as an e-resource for those who have access to Informit's databases: Humanities and Social Sciences Collection (from Issue 207, Mar. 2009) or the Australian Public Affairs Full Text (from Issue 159, Spr. 1994). Approximately 100 libraries across the world provide access to either or both of these databases.
