Specifically, AUSS publishes research articles, dissertation abstracts, and book reviews on the following topics: biblical archaeology and the history of antiquity; Hebrew Bible; New Testament; church history of all periods; historical, biblical, systematic, and philosophical theology; ethics; history of religions; and mission. Selected research articles on ministry and Christian education may also be included. (Link)
