Profiting through Plagiarism

Saturday's Telegraph carried an article about students buying essays on eBay to submit as coursework. It is easy to catch such cheats using a Google search - the question is whether it is in a school's interest to keep their pass-mark high - no matter how this is achieved.

G.W.H. Lampe on Typology

As promised, here is the first article:

G.W.H. Lampe, "Hermeneutics And Typology," Symposium: The Old Testament in the Church Today. The London Quarterly & Holborn Review (January 1965): 17-25.

For those who tried the link earlier and got a 404 error, the link is now working.

The Old Testament in the Church Today (1965)

Today I received permission from Methodist Publishing House to reproduce seven articles from the 1965 Symposium: The Old Testament in the Church Today. The London Quarterly & Holborn Review (January 1965). I hope to place them on-line within a week or two.

'The day is coming when British Muslims form a state within a state'

So writes Alasdair Palmer in his interview with the director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity, Patrick Sookhdeo. Dr Sookhdeo was proved right when he predicted suicide bombers in the UK and it seems likely that he will be right about the imposition of Sharia Law in the UK as well. Well worth a read.

Francis Foulkes on Typology

I have just uploaded:

Francis Foulkes, The Acts of God. A Study of the Basis of Typology in the Old Testament. London: The Tyndale Press, 1955. Pbk. pp.40.

This is the last of the Tyndale Press Monographs I have at present. If I come across any more that are suitable I will try and get permission to reproduce them.

Cartoon Jihad

Two articles on this subject by Melanie Phillips are well-worth a read: Cartoon Jihad and Cartoon Jihad (2).

Looking towards the future of biblicalstudies.org.uk

I have been extremely busy in the last couple of weeks working through Ted Hildebrandt's extensive archive of online articles. I have now completed linking to his Old Testament material and am catching my breath before embarking on the New Testament. This, and my latest surcharge for website bandwidth, has caused me to re-evaluate the emphasis of my sites.

When I launched them five years ago there was very little material on-line and I worked at obtaining permission from publishers and putting it on-line myself. Now I am hearing from numerous sources that many others have seen the potential of the Internet for serious study. I have had emails from individual scholars who are working at providing on-line bibliographies and other working at digitising theological journals. All this means that I can now concentrate of linking to the material available elsewhere and gather these links together into a meaningful order rather than doing the "donkey work" of scanning myself. I still have a few projects in progress, but I need now to ensure that I am not simply duplicating the excellent work being done by others.
