The CGAR series are publications from the Centre for Gospels and Acts Research, launched by the Sydney College of Divinity on 28 September 2017. It promotes research into the Gospels and Acts from a variety of methodological perspectives.
Early Christian Studies was previously published by the Australian Catholic University and St Pauls, Sydney. SCD Press now publishes and manages the ongoing sales of this important monograph series.
The Journal of Gospels and Acts Research publishes research into the four Gospels and, due to the connections with Luke, the Book of Acts. The first Journal was published in 2017 and is considered among the first of its kind where peer-reviewed published articles are dedicated entirely to the Gospels and the Book of Acts.
The Journal of Theological Reflections is the academic journal of the Sydney College of Divinity Korean School of Theology. Articles may be in Korean or English. The first volume was published in 2013. It is intended that the Journal will be an annual publication, though its first three publications were biennially published.
