Kairos Evangelical Journal of Theology

Kairos Evangelical Journal of Theology

Last week in Zagreb I met Koraljka Rožić, one of the editors of Kairos Evangelical Journal of Theology. Kairos is an open access theological journal published in both Croatian and English editions and print and electronic format. Koraljka was very happy for me to create a table of contents for the journal on BiblicalStudies.org.uk in order to make the journal more widely known. Kairos has many interesting articles, some on subjects that I have not seen discussed elsewhere.

Biblical Linguistics Digitisation Project

Biblical Linguistics Digitisation Project

Dr Dale Brueggemann contacted me recently to request that I make available key Biblical linguistics resources on my website in PDF. A great number of Greek & Hebrew lexicons and grammars are now out of copyright which still have value to Bible students and scholars. Dr David Instone-Brewer from Tyndale House has agreed to make available the language works that Tyndale House have digitised to form the start of what I am calling the Biblical Linguistics Digitisation Project. As my own knowledge of biblical language reference works is very limited I am very grateful to Dale and David for their expertise and advice when selecting material.

Here are the first volumes to be made available through this project. Note that due to the number of pages in each volume the file sizes are very large.
