IBMR now available online for free

The International Bulletin of Missionary Research is now available online for free.

The IBMR website has everything from 2004 to the present day. It also has a link and username/password to browse back issues through the ATLA database.

I had a quick browse and found a 2006 article by Philip Jenkins on ‘Reading the Bible in the Global South’, which looks interesting. I’m sure a closer inspection would reveal more Bible and Mission related papers.

It’s great that more and more resources are becoming more easily accessible. I know journals need to pay their way, or at least to have a sponsoring organisation behind them, but being freely available makes them accessible to those around the globe who could never dream of being able to afford them.
