CSStudies.org Now Available for Sharing Papers and Syllabi
is now available for members of the Society to share information about
their work and receive comments. The blog format
allows members to post citations and/or abstracts of papers
delivered at conferences. Members choosing to archive their
papers in the blog will enable their SSCS colleagues to request copies.
The blog also serves as a repository of syllabi of courses in
Christian spirituality in a manner similar to the Wabash Center
for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion. As with
papers, copies of the syllabi will be available to SSCS members.
All blog posts will be open to comments by SSCS members and
non-members. The goal of CSStudies.org is to support academic
work in Christian spirituality, and to do so by taking advantage of the
rapidly evolving environment of the web which is transforming the ways
in which people learn and do research. For more information,

by SSCS member Glen G. Scorgie, this new resource contains
contributions from a number of Society members. For more
information, see the publisher's page. According to a review in Library
Journal, "This clear, understandable text with its singular features
and perspective deserves a place alongside Philip Sheldrake’s The New
Westminster Dictionary of Christian Spirituality (Westminster John Knox
Press, 2005) and Arthur Holder’s The Blackwell Companion to Christian
Spirituality (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010). Valuable for educators, clergy,
students, and general readers; highly recommended for academic,
seminary, large public, and church libraries."
