Hello and welcome to Civitate: The City Online, the ongoing internet-based conversation around Houston Baptist University’s The City. As our publication only comes to you thrice-annually, Civitate.org will give you the opportunity to read and consider the writings and thoughts of our contributors in between issues, providing you with topical articles from prior volumes, links to other fascinating content around the web, and new material from our contributors in podcast form!
The City is named both as a reference to HBU’s spiritual location within Augustine of Hippo’s De civitate Dei and for HBU’s physical presence in a great American metropolis. It seemed only appropriate for our website to share this spirit.
If you are interested in receiving a copy of The City or sending it to a friend, or information about HBU, please fill out this form to subscribe.
