Our conviction and strong desire is to foster biblical, theological, and historical studies that strengthen the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s message and mission.

Two journals bring regular Society scholarship to libraries, theologians, pastors, church administrators, and interested lay people

​Journal of the Adventist Theological Society (JATS)

Journal of the Adventist Theological Society (JATS) is a refereed (double-blind peer-reviewed) scholarly journal, translated intermittently into German, Spanish, and Russian. JATS is sent to every member of the Evangelical Theological Society where it is read by nearly 2000 non-Adventist evangelical scholars.

Opinions expressed in JATS are those of the authors and not necessarily those of the Adventist Theological Society.  The validity and accuracy of quoted material included in articles is the responsibility of the authors of the articles. It is hoped that the publication of various views will serve as a catalyst for further academic discussion. The journal welcomes the submission of other scholarly perspectives on published articles which will then be considered for possible publication.

If you're interested in submitting an article, please see our writer's guidelines here.

Perspective Digest (PD)

Perspective Digest (PD) presents theological articles in a more popular format for our lay members. It regularly offers readable digests of significant JATS articles allowing the scholar’s influence to reach beyond academia.

Perspective Digest is now an online magazine:  www.perspectivedigest.org

ATS Academy​

ATS Academy (Youtube) is another resource ATS provides for those asking questions about today's theological issues in an easy-to-follow video format that one can share with fellow scholars, pastors, students, or neighbors.
