About Us

The Prophet is a journal created by and for the students at the Boston University School of Theology (BUSTH) to amplify the voices of STH students by promoting and sharing a range of perspectives on matters of concern including, but not limited to, spiritual practices, faith communities and society, the nature of theology, and current affairs.  It serves as a platform for STH students to share their academic work, theological reflections, and life experiences with one another and the wider community.
