CTSI Projects


IIMF supports CTSI

From 2024, the International Institute for Missiological Research (IIMF) will support the CTSI with an annual grant of 15,000 euros. The IIMF and the CTSI are united by the conviction that the research fields of comparative and intercultural theology should be brought into more intensive mutual relations. The contribution of the IIMF is intended to promote corresponding efforts in the CTSI.

Theology of Prophecy (DFG-research project)

The objective of this project is to go along, as a Christian theological endeavour, with ongoing research (at the University of Paderborn) recasting, on the basis of the Quran, Muslim prophetology, and to employ this research so as to develop a Christian prophetology that will be aware of the theology of Israel.
