Website Year End Review 2010

2010 has been an extremely busy year for the Theology on the Web websites, with a noticeable development from placing individual articles online to placing whole journals online as well. The following journals are now avialable on-line for the first time. The current  incompleteness of some of these journals is an indication of how difficult it is proving for me to get hold of copies in the UK to scan.

Australian Biblical Review
Caribbean Journal of Evangelical Theology
Indian Journal of Theology

There has also been a shift from digitising western journals to making available those from the Far East. Given the increasing numbers of visitors from this region and the sites purpose in making good theological resources to those in the Two Thirds World this is a very welcome development.

New Tables of Contents

The following two journals are avialable online at their host sites, but I have added tables of contents for them both on biblicalstudies.org.uk in order to make access to them easier.



New website launched

On the 1st November I launched biblicalarchaeology.org.uk, which will provide resources on the vast field of Biblical Archaeology. Much work needs to be done to make the site the comprehensive resource I hope it will become.

Future Additions

This year I also registered two more domains: reformationchurch.org.uk and gospelstudies.org.uk. reformationchurch.org.uk follows on chronological, of course, from medievalchurch.org.uk  The subject matter of this period of Church History is immense and complex, so development is expected to take several years.

gospelstudies.org.uk was registered in case it becomes necessary to increase the amount of material on the 4 Gospels beyond that which would easily fit into the structure of BiblicalStudies.org.uk comfortably. I have no timescale as yet for the development of this site.

Early in the Near Year I am hoping to start work on the digitisation of the Transactions of the Baptist Historical Society and its successor Baptist Quarterly. I expect that these will take a considerable time to complete.

And Finally...

2011 marks the 10th Anniversary of BiblicalStudies.org.uk. A partial history of its development can be found on Archive.org's WayBack Machine.

I would like to thank all of my visitors for their encouragement and assistance over the years. Without your ongoing support this milestone could not have been reached.
