East Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology now on-line

The East Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology was published by Scott Theological College in Kenya. In 1990 the journal was sponsored by the ACTEA Consortium of Theological Colleges, an association which links 42 theological colleges and graduate schools throughout Africa. To mark this change the journal changed its name to the Africa Journal of Evangelical Theology. The journal appears on-line for the first time here by permission of the Editorial Committee. It is hoped that its availability in this way will allow the voice of African Theology to receive a wider hearing.

The first eight years of the journal can be accessed here.

My thanks to the Editorial Committee of Scott Theological College, to the current editor Dr. Andrew Wildsmith and the staff of All Nations Christian College library for their assistance.

Volumes 9-20 is scheduled to go on-line next next week.

The Expositor Series 1 (1875-1880) now online

The first series of the periodical The Expositor, which featured articles by some of the leading scholars of its day is now available on-line here. The series, which contains around 425 articles is the first part of a project to which should see the first 8 series being made freely available for the first time. Digitisation took 5 months to complete working at a rate of 10 hours per week. Click here to find out how you can help to speed up the process. I plan to start on series 2 something in 2014.

Book Aid London – a Hidden Gem of a Theological Bookshop

Book Aid currently has six bookshops around the UK, in Barnard Castle, Dundee, London, RanskillTemplepatrick (Northern Ireland) and Warrington. I visited the London bookshop on Friday and was amazed both by the quality of the stock and the low prices being charged. In my opinion all theological students in the UK should beat a path to their nearest Book Aid bookshop in order to equip themselves with a good library.

Here are some pictures so that you will be able to see a small sample of the vast range of titles the London shop currently has on sale.

Banner of Truth Commentaries


Systematic & Historical Theology and D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones Commentaries

To get to the London Bookshop by train, get the train to Lower Sydenham station, cross the footbridge and walk up to the main road (Kangley Bridge Road), turn left, walk for 3-5 minutes and you should see the headquarters building above across the road from you.
