Format: Digital
Publisher: ratings


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 United Kingdom, and it became a digital journal operated by The Gospel Coalition in 2008. The new editorial team, led by D. A. Carson, seeks to preserve representation, in both essayists and reviewers, from both sides of the Atlantic. Each issue contains articles on important theological themes, as well as book reviews and discussion from the most important evangelical voices of our time.

With Logos, you have instant access to decades’ worth of content in Themelios. You can search by author, topic, and Scripture passage—and find it all instantly. What’s more, Scripture references link to both original language texts and English Bible translations, and links within each volume of Themelios allow you to quickly move from the table of contents to the articles to the index and back again. Save yourself from turning pages, cross-referencing citations, and unnecessarily complex research projects. The Logos edition of Themelios allows you to cut and paste the content you need for citations and automatically creates footnotes in your document using your preferred style guide. With Themelios, combined with the power of your digital library, you have the most important tools you need for your research projects, sermon preparation, and theological study!
