About This Journal

Consensus (ISSN 2369-2685) is the theological journal published by these two institutions of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) since 1985. Prior to that it was a forum of the Canadian Lutheran Merger Commission of the late 1970s which led to the formation of the ELCIC. We are currently in the process of transferring the journal to an online format.

This periodical is indexed in the ATLA Religion Database® (ATLA RDB®).
