The Lutheran Education Journal, formerly known in print as Lutheran Education, is now a Web-only publication.
First published in 1865 as Evangelisch-Lutherisches Schulblatt (Evangelical Lutheran School Paper), the Journal is designed for Lutheran educators. It includes articles about research on curriculum and teaching, as well as news about higher education, summaries of stories from other publications and book reviews.
It is published by Concordia University Chicago, River Forest, Ill., in conjunction with the Lutheran Education Association.
Although the print version of the Journal has been discontinued, Editor Dr. O. John Zillman told Reporter that archived copies are available on the publication’s website.
No longer subscription-based, the online Journal is now available to everyone without charge.
“In doing so, we hope that the unique voice of those engaged in Christ-centered education in Lutheran schools and parish-based education programs will be accessible to those engaged in similar missions in parochial education and that it might also become known as a particular niche within the education profession at-large on, literally, a global basis,” he said. “Conversely, we may also find that we receive interesting and useful article proposals from those who share those similar values and concerns in educating the whole child — mind, body and spirit.
“We have much to contribute; we should always be open to learning from colleagues.”
Zillman said the changes will not affect the editorial stance of the Journal, which will continue to “focus on the urgency of sharing the best professional, research-informed ways of bringing the Gospel to young people.”
