To make high quality theological freely material available
throughout the world, thus providing Bible teachers and pastors with the
resources they need to spread the Gospel in their countries. This is achieved
- Digitising and uploading in co-operation with authors and publishers, rare and out-of-print theology books and articles. Over 18,000 articles are now available for free download.
- Providing detailed bibliographies for Seminary level students and ministers.
- Providing, with the help of volunteers, translations of
theological articles in a number of languages.
- Providing a single cross-linked resource made up of seven
websites, some of which are under development.
BiblicalStudies.org.uk hosts over 18,000 full text theological articles linked into bibliographies on each book of the Bible. It also covers such subjects as hermeneutics, biblical languages, criticism, language, etc. - in short almost everything connected with the Bible and its study.
TheologicalStudies.org.uk throws its net slightly wider, providing material on a range of theologies and theologians, as well as specific doctrines such as the Trinity, for example. The section on practical theology seeks to provide material on how theology is applied in daily life, in such areas as politics and ethics.
EarlyChurch.org.uk covers church history until the rise of the medieval Papacy (c.600 AD).
MedievalChurch.org.uk takes over where EarlyChurch.org.uk leaves off, covering church history from the rise of the Papacy to the time of the Reformation.
ReformationChurch.org.uk - covers church history during and after the Reformation.
- BiblicalArchaeology.org.uk provides material relating to the archaeology of the lands of the Bible.
- Missiology.org.uk provides resources for students of Christian missions from the first Century onwards [currently under development].
Cross-linking of subjects mean that a student studying
baptism (for example) would be able to move from the baptism of Jesus, to
baptism in the early church, the medieval church and then to how it is
understood by a range of modern theologians.
These sites were created by Rob Bradshaw, a graduate of Bangor University and Mattersey Hall Bible College. Rob is passionate about Christian theology and church history and about making resources freely available for those who want them. His aim is to eventually do this work full-time.
