Alexander Street Press Premieres Series of Scholarly Religious Texts Debut Collection Highlights Seminal Works in Christianity

February 12, 2013

(ALEXANDRIA, VA) – Alexander Street Press premieres its newest series Twentieth Century Religious Thought with a volume of seminal text materials in the Christian tradition.

Volume I: Christianity is the debut collection in the four-volume series that brings together online the written works of the 20th century’s most influential worldwide religious thinkers. The collection will grow to include 150,000 pages of scholarship from key theologians—100,000 pages of published writings paired with complementary archival resources.

Content in Volume I: Christianity reflects the increasingly global and pluralistic character of religious scholarship by including voices from other religions that have generated meaningful interfaith dialogue. It also incorporates works from members of previously marginalized groups, among them key feminist theologians and scholars. The more than 30 contributing scholars include Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jurgen Moltmann, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Dorothee Soëlle, Gustavo Gutièrrez, and Henri de Lubac.

The collection incorporates content from the field’s leading partners including Fortress Press and Ignatius Press. An editorial board advises on the inclusion of materials, and is comprised of experts including Rosemary Radford Ruether, professor of Feminist Theology at Claremont School of Theology; Diane Apostolos-Cappadona, Christian studies professor at

Georgetown University; David Stubbs, Professor of Ethics and Theology at Western Theological Seminary; David Thomas, Professor of Christianity and Islam at the University of Birmingham; and others.

“The multi-faith, multicultural focus of the Twentieth Century Religious Thought series will provide a remarkable tool for analysis and comparison,” said Nathalie Duval, Editor at Alexander Street Press. “The nuance and detail of these materials makes them valuable for scholars of all branches of religion.”

Future releases in the series will include Volume II: Islam; Volume III: Judaism; and Volume IV: Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism. Volume I: Christianity will be available online to academic, public, and school libraries worldwide via subscription or one-time purchase of perpetual rights. Prices are scaled to institutional size and budget.

All volumes in the Twentieth Century Religious Thought series will be cross-searchable with The Digital Karl Barth Library through a single interface. To request a free trial or price quote, please e-mail sales [at] alexanderstreet [dot] com.
