Horizons publishes award-winning peer-reviewed articles, roundtables, and book reviews across a wide range of topics in theology and religious studies. While rooted in a commitment to the long and deep Catholic tradition of "faith seeking understanding," that commitment also welcomes all original scholarship in theology and religious studies that contributes to its basic constructive focus. It is unique in content with its ecumenical view, layperson editorial staff, wide range of methods and topics, and insightful analysis of belief interacting with culture. Horizons, though based in the USA, publishes work by national and international college and university professors with both active research profiles and teaching experience. One does not have to be a member of the College Theology Society to submit to the journal.
