Concilium Journal is deliberately based on Scripture and the history of salvation.

At the same time it has the humble courage to confront the new problems arising from the human conditions of today. It seeks, on the basis of our contemporary situation, a better understanding of the Word of God for man and the world of our time.

A theological insight of this kind is necessary for anyone who, acting in faith, is actively engaged in the Church and in the world.
