Themelios - A Free International Evangelical Theological Journal

"Themelios is an international evangelical theological journal that expounds and defends the historic Christian faith." This is the opening line of the description of the journal at the Gospel Coalition website. Many of you may already be familiar with this journal -- at least to some extent -- if you have had some bible college or seminary studies and had to research and write papers. But for those who may not be familiar with it, here is the description from the website:
Themelios is an international evangelical theological journal that expounds and defends the historic Christian faith. Its primary audience is theological students and pastors, though scholars read it as well. It was formerly a print journal operated by RTSF/UCCF in the UK, and it became a digital journal operated by The Gospel Coalition in 2008.

Themelios is published three times a year exclusively online at The Gospel Coalition. It is presented in three formats:

iPaper (a Flash-based interface that allows flexible viewing without requiring you to download the document)

PDF (for downloading and citing pagination)

HTML (for greater accessibility, usability, and infiltration in search engines)
Themelios is copyrighted by The Gospel Coalition. Readers are free to use it and circulate it in digital form without further permission (any print use requires further written permission), but they must acknowledge the source and, of course, not change the content.
D.A Carson currently serves as the General Editor of the journal. Past contributors include a wide variety of scholars such as D.A. Carson, J.I. Packer, John Stott, Gordan Wenham, Richard Bauckham, Gerald Bray, Craig Blomberg, Geoffrey Bromiley, I. Howard Marshall, Richard Mouw, Michael Homes, etc. As you can see, there is a pretty eclectic group of scholars, and many of them would not hold to Calvinistic, Covenantal, or Baptist views. But it is still worth checking out.

All the issues since 1975 are freely available for download and reading here. See what you think.
