Academic Confessions Theology and Religious Studies Practical Theology Free Books in pdf format
The first two books in this series are written by Professors Frank Eyck and Karla Poewe. Present complex, personal and academic, journies that interwoven with the impact of World War II on thier lives. These books follow in a long tradition of academic writing where well established authors explain the circumstances that shaped thier work and understanding. They follow Sir Karl Popper's maxim that openess is essential to good scholarship in democratic societies.
This series publishes popular academic works about contemporary religious and theological issues. The aim is to help readers understand different religions traditions and the rise of religious pluralism in Western society.
Although there are many books written on theology, and Christian ministers undergo extensive training, there are some big gaps. These concern practical issues such as how to run a funeral or close down a failing church. This series seeks to address issues like these in practical ways.
From time to time even good books go out of print. This series offers books that are still in copyright that their authors, or copyright holders, have allowed to be published by Vogelstein press as free pdf downloads.
