Vox Clara

Vox Clara (“Clear Voice”) is a student-run journal of Christian thought at Stanford. We aim to use our publication to clearly speak to the entire campus about Jesus, the clear voice whose message of truth, hope, and love permeates into all areas of life.  More specifically, we endeavor to 1) use Christianity as a lens to critically explore a broad range of subjects through articles, poetry, fiction, and artwork, 2) demonstrate that Christian faith and a vigorous intellectual life can be pursued together, each challenging and enriching the other, and 3) reflect both the unity and diversity found within the Christian community at Stanford.  We hope our biannually published journals will drive readers to engage in conversation with members of the Christian community.  Our team of both graduate and undergraduate students is always looking for writers, editors, graphic designers, and tech-savvy people to join us.  For more information, see voxclara.wixsite.com/voxclara or email us at voxclarastanford@gmail.com.
