In recognition of this, their books have been both shortlisted for, and awarded, prizes such as the Australian Christian Book of the Year.

Diverse Scholarly research
As with other academic institutions globally, the Australian College of Theology values publication as a way to share the knowledge arising from research undertaken by our faculty and others. We collect publication data each year as one way to measure our research output, and produce a research report to summarise this data. This report includes publications which are judged to be original research scholarship.
The research report also includes the research currently being undertaken by our postgraduate students, revealing future areas of research within the consortium and the wider Australasian theological academy.
