What’s Inspiring Us, Written for You

Our diverse and brilliant faculty give unique richness to the theological studies, programs, and lectures at Yellowstone Theological Institute, and we are proud to highlight this work on Yellowstone Theological Institute’s blog.

A Christian organization should hold the word of God as truth, but human interpretation of it as dynamic, open to amplified understanding, and informed by a living history and analysis of experience. And a worthy institution of higher education must recognize and value diverse voice. The YTI blog features a rotating field of contributors from varied academic and theological disciplines. Here, our faculty shares their research and writings with unique points of view.
