Theological Journals Search ~ Guide Description
This LibGuide lists and links to open access--free on the Web--journals, magazines, newsletters, and other periodical literature related to theology, Scripture studies, religious studies, pastoral and practical ministries, and cognate disciplines.
The full text of many of these journals is searchable and retrievable via Theological Journals Search, which is a Google custom search engine created in 2007 by ORU librarian Sally Jo Shelton. For now, only a representative number of the 350+ journals searchable in TJS are listed in the guide, but more will be added as time allows.
