The Wade Center's annual journal provides an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of the lives and works of the seven Wade authors.
We invite you to explore all the VII has to offer on its dedicated website. Through this webpage, you can purchase individual volumes or subscribe as an individual or an institution for online access to the three most recent volumes.
In 1980, Dr. Barbara Reynolds, Dr. Clyde S. Kilby, and Dr. Beatrice Batson founded VII: Journal of the Marion E. Wade Center. For over thirty years, this peer-reviewed academic journal has promoted awareness of the seven authors of the Wade Center, as well as encouraged critical assessment of their numerous and diverse works. VII is designed for both the general and specialized reader and offers a particular emphasis on the literary, philosophical, religious, and historical aspects of the authors and their writings, including those which remain unpublished.

"VII will be of enormous interest to anyone who cares about English literature and, particularly, about fine literature which is also Christian."
Madeleine L' Engle
"The seven writers highlighted in this journal were by no means artists for art's sake: they were idea oriented, involved always with perennial matters. Their deepest concerns are still our concerns, and VII promises to conduct an interdisciplinary dialog of major significance."
