Theology on the Web is Seventeen

Decorative image

It is 17 years since the first of the Theology on the Web sites, biblicalstudies.org.uk went on-line.

Here is a quick summary of what has been achieved just in the last year across the seven websites.

  • 1.8  million visitors, that’s just over 5,000 each day
  • More than 35,000 theological articles and books are now available for free download
  • Material from almost 100 theological journals is available, from table of contents to complete text of every article
  • 5.8 Terabytes of this material have been downloaded
  • China and India are both in the top five countries for visitor numbers
  • All sites now included in the e-Granary Project, which sends their entire contents on disk into Universities with little or no Internet access around the world
  • Open Access Commentary Survey Project launched
  • 7 regular financial supporters – two up on last year

A big “Thank You” to all who have helped to make this possible.

F.F. Bruce Copyright International Publications – Update

Professor FF BruceLast December I hosted a guest post by Larry Stone, who is organising the reprinting in electronic formats the works of F.F. Bruce. Larry has told me that the process is moving forward. He writes:

F.F. Bruce Copyright International plans to publish at least 17 books as ebooks in the fall under the Kingsley Books imprint — ranging in price from $2.99 to $14.99. Things are going more slowly than planned because we want to take the time to make excellent ebooks.

Six of the covers of these books are shown below. Click on the thumbnails to bring up a larger image.

 The Spreading Flame - F.F. Bruce  Paul and His Converts - F.F. Bruce  The New Testament Development of Old Testament Themes
 The Letters of Paul - F.F. Bruce  Second Thoughts on the Dead Sea Scrolls - F.F. Bruce  Acts - A Bible Study Commentary - F.F. Bruce

I will post further information as it becomes available.

14 Years of Theology on the Web!

14 Years of Theology on the Web
14 Years of Theology on the Web!

Theology on the Web was launched 14 years ago this month. It is exciting to note that this anniversary coincides with three other major milestones in the development of the ministry.

  • There are now over 25,000 free-to-download theological articles hosted on Theology on the Web.
  • 2.3 terabytes of data was downloaded worldwide over the last 12 months. If, like me, you have no idea what that means, it is the data equivalent of downloading 2,300 sets of the Encyclopaedia Britannica!
  • Theology on the Web has now moved to its own Virtual Webserver with greatly increasing speed and capacity as the visitor numbers climb to around 2 million in 2015.

To mark these events, I have prepared a Press Release which I am sending to Christian News services in the UK and posting online. Please feel free to download and share this document as widely as possible.

Finally, thank you all for making this possible by your ongoing support and encouragement!
