Theology on the Web

Rob Bradshaw’s full time job is librarian at Spurgeon’s College in London. But he also has a passion for making theology available on the Internet.

Here is the website you need to know:

https://theologyontheweb.org.uk

Rob has digitized 40,000 articles from dozens and dozens of journals.  Some you have heard of.  Some you have not.  But he has done his due diligence to contact the authors and/or their heirs to make sure he has permission to put their work on the web so that people across the world can see it.

In this time of Covid-19 when libraries are closed and resources are scarce, it is great to have access to these articles.  They are cross-referenced by author, publication, topic, etc.

Rob has articles on a variety of disciplines: theology, church history, Old Testament, New Testament, and archaeology.  The website above mentioned above curates and organizes the entire collection of digitized articles.

Now, Rob does this on the side, as a gift to scholars, pastors, and students.  Access to the articles are free, but if you’d like to help him with some of the expenses, leave some money in the tip jar before you go.

 

The Word Biblical Commentary

During this Corona pandemic a lot of important work is being doing.  I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Katya Covrett as the New Testament editor for the Word Biblical Commentary (WBC).  It has been one of my go-to commentaries for years.  In fact, at where I work, the Lanier Theological Library, the WBC is one of the most sought after commentary series.  The project has been led over the years by some great scholars whom I know and some I do not.  My predecessors in this project are Ralph Martin and Peter Davids.  It is a joy to add now my efforts to what has been done to make this and keep this a great commentary on the Scripture.  Here is a brief announcement from Zondervan Academic.  I hope you will take a moment and read it.

Professor Seyoon Kim is well on his way to completing the new commentary on 1 & Thessalonians.  I should receive that this summer and will be working on it soon after.

 

More to come.
