Discernment: Theology and the Practice of Ministry
Discernment is a journal of practical theology. In language accessible to the church, it presents peer-reviewed work by scholar-practitioners describing Christian ministry in a broad array of contexts, exemplified by: congregational life; a particular ministry within a congregation (children’s ministry or youth ministry, for example); mission contexts, whether single or multi-congregational; ministry in cross-cultural settings; or Christian ministry in an extra-congregational environment (for example: disaster relief, care for the poor, or care for children and families). See the Aims and Scope for more information about the journal's coverage.

Yann Opsitch (évangéliste avec les Eglises du Christ en France, auteur et professeur) fonda la revue et fut le rédacteur en chef durant ses seize années de publication.

Les doctrines du Nouveau Testament, ainsi que les sujets d’apologétique et d’histoire du christianisme prédominent. Ont contribué à la rédaction (certains auteurs ne sont pas affiliés aux Eglises du Christ) : Yann Opsitch, Sylvio Caddeo, John Clayton, Bernard Blandre, Jean-François Mayer, Arlin Hendrix, Judy Hendrix (†), Charles White, Don Daugherty (†), Seylvie Pessia, Richard Andrzejewski (†), Jean-Marie Frérot, Doyle Kee, Barbara Kee, Stéphane Bilak (†), Jacques Marchal (†), Jean Bertschi (†), Vitorio Vitalone, Basil Overton (†), Jerry Davidson, Robert Limb, Raymond Perrenoud, Fausto Salvoni (†), Richard Dries, Yves Perriard, S.F.

Mission (Stone-Campbell Archival Journals)
Launched in 1967, Mission was a forum for theological reflection on issues such as race, gender, war and peace-making, the place of the church in urban society, the nature and implications of Restorationism and critical Biblical and historical scholarship.
Bob Turner, in his preface to this oral history project, describes Mission's character as "unique—sort of Sojourners meets Village Voice meets MAD Magazine. It was smart enough to provoke a theologian but accessible enough to put on your coffee table; classic enough to attract intellectuals in the 1960s but avante garde enough to get picked up by a college kid a generation later. It was unquestionably the literary counterculture of Church of Christ periodicals for two decades."His oral history compiles reflections from some of the key persons involved in Mission from its founding to its closure in 1988: Dwain Evans, Don Haymes, Richard Hughes, Victor Hunter, Warren Lewis, and Thomas Olbricht.
Thomas Olbricht provides in this essay, New Journals for the Sixties: Restoration Quarterly and Mission an extended reflection and assessment of the impact of these journals. Drawing from his deep insider involvement in Mission and from Abe Malherbe's in Restoration Quarterly, Olbricht situates them within the journalistic, editorial, theological and historical contexts of the 1950s-1970s Churches of Christ.Finally, Greg McKinzie conducted an interview-style session at the 2017 Christian Scholars' Conference, Lipscomb University, Nashville, TN, dedicated to recording the stories of Dwain Evans, Vic Hunter, and Richard Hughes in the production of Mission Journal. Participants reflected on the motivations, hardships, and successes of publishing thoughtful, courageous content during a tumultuous time for the country and for Churches of Christ. What were the personal costs? How did the journal evolve and why? What would they do differently if they had it to do over? And what is the legacy of Mission for today?
Restoration Quarterly is devoted to advancing knowledge and understanding of New Testament Christianity, its backgrounds, its history, and its implications for the present age. Articles in the journal do not necessarily represent the view of the editor, the editorial board, or the corporate board of Restoration Quarterly. The editor is responsible for the selection of material, but the responsibility for opinions expressed and accuracy of facts rests solely with the individual author.
All Restoration Quarterly articles are available in full text in the ATLA Religion Database, available through most university and theological libraries.
