Theology databases: Alexander Street Press

My university library has just purchased subscriptions to two theology databases, both published by Alexander Street Press:

These are research databases of the highest quality. The organisation is elegant and intuitive, and the search capacities are highly sophisticated. For instance, you can find every time Barth’s correspondence mentions “Bultmann” and “myth” in a single sentence, or you can search Barth’s exegetical writings for the words that occur most frequently in close proximity to the word πίστις; or (in the Protestant Texts database) you can search for every time Calvin cites Romans 11:33 in his sermons, or every time he refers to Luther in his early letters; and so on.

This is the first time an Australian library has purchased these databases, and I’m sure they’ll prove to be indispensable resources for future research. If you want ask your own library for a subscription or free trial, you can get in touch with the sales team at Alexander Street Press.

I really wanted to comment on your prayer in a time of war blog, but since you closed the discussion I will repsected your wishes and leave things at that. Check out my wesbsite at for another fresh Christian perspective on current events and spirituality.
