Theological studies topical in periodical (9)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'periodical' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'theological studies topical' is the wordplay.
'theological studies' becomes 're' (I am not sure about this - if you are sure you should give a lot more credence to this answer).
'topical' becomes 'current' (similar in meaning).

'in' acts as a link.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for recurrent that I've seen before include "Repeated again and again" , "always coming back" , "seen frequently" , "taking place periodically" , "Happening repeatedly" .)

I've seen this clue in The Telegraph.
