Academic Journal: The New Thought Scholar

"When we follow in the tradition of the first great Christian scholars of the 11th century like St. Thomas Aquinas, and use the tools of informed discourse, lecture, research and commentary; when we meet the critical standards of scholarship and equip qualified practitioners to substantiate their Truths, we discover in the process that such depth of scholarship in fact illuminates our faith."


-- The Rev. Dr. Mary Tumpkin, D.Min
The 1st President of JCTS


"It is a milestone of maturity when a religious movement engages in serious self-study, when the movement produces trained scholars prepared to apply the methods of scholarship to its own history and beliefs. Thanks to the vision of the Rev. Dr. Johnnie Colemon and the intellectual hunger and fiery zeal of Rev. Dr. Mary Tumpkin, New Thought begins to reclaim its historic Christian identity and biblical roots at an entirely new level with this very first issue of New Thought Scholar."


-- Dr. Robert Price, PhD
