Thanks to those who installed DropBox

I wanted to post a quick note tot hank those who have installed DropBox using my referral link. I mentioned a while ago just how helpful the software is proving, allowing me to synchronise my work across three computers. The additional free space that referrals provide will prove extremely useful as I take on several new projects over the next year.

TSF Bulletin Digitisation Project Begins

The Theological Students' Fellowship Bulletin ran between 1951 and 1975 when it became Themelios. It was aimed at strengthening the faith of theological students in the UK  As you can see from the Table of Contents many of the contributors are well-known for their contributions to Biblical Scholarship. In order that this work is not lost I am commencing the digitisation of the series and will be seeking permission from the copyright holders (which would be the authors, or their executors if deceased, in most cases) in due course with the aim of getting as much as possible on-line. I already have permission from a number of the authors, but if you know any of the contributors personally please encourage them to contact me.

More Ways to Support Theology on the Web

Download the new poster
Each month www.biblicalstudies.org.uk receives around 40,000 visitors from all around the world who downloaded (last month) 65 GB of material, mostly in the form of PDF files, free of charge. In order to cover expenses I have been adding to the ways in which visitors can support the sites here. There are now 14 different ways to do this and only three involve sending money directly. Some will even save you time and money. For example, you can download and install DropBox (this gets me - and you - an extra 500 MB of storage space), you can sign up to Top Cash Back (which gets me a £5.00 bonus), or you could download and print out my new poster (right). Visit the Support page for more suggestions.
