At that time, the products will fall on the same renewal cycle as all other Alexander Street products.

Note that if your institution is not a SCELC member, to participate in this offer your institution will need to become a SCELC affiliate. TexShare members may do so at http://scelc.org/texshare. All others may apply at http://scelc.org/application.

Twentieth Century Religious Thought, Volume I: Christianity
Twentieth Century Religious Thought is a multi-volume, cross-searchable collection that brings together seminal works and archival materials of key worldwide religious thinkers from the early 1900s until the turn of the 21st century. Volume I: Christianity launched in February and includes an international selection of English-language editions of key authors such as Dietrich Boenhoffer, Hans Urs von Baltasar, Henri de Lubac, Wolfang Pannenberg, Dorothee Soëlle, Gustavo Gutierrez, and Rosemary Radford Ruether; a selection of the papers of Reinhold Niebuhr; and annotated links to Web sites across religions.
Twentieth Century Religious Thought supports research and teaching in comparative religion, theology, world religion, religion and the law, and religion and politics, and it serves as an important resource for courses and scholarship in social theory, feminist studies, philosophy, and world history. (Future optional volumes will focus on Judaism; Islam; and Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism.)
The initial pricing for these resources is in the attached SCELC order forms. These are the annual subscription prices, so the first invoice will be prorated to the 18-month amount, to maintain SCELC’s common expiration date of December 31, 2014, as noted above.
