Interesting resource: religion-online.org

Found an interesting resource: http://religion-online.org/. It's got full texts by recognized religious scholars. More than 6,000 articles and chapters. Topics include Old and New Testament, Theology, Ethics, History and Sociology of Religion, Communication and Cultural Studies, Pastoral Care, Counseling, Homiletics, Worship, Missions and Religious Education. Includes a search function.
Most of them are liberal, though. Even those described as evangelical-conservative are more "soft" evangelicals like Ron Sider and Clark Pinnock. The two entries I found by true conservatives - Carl F. H. Henry and J. I. Packer - did not represent the breadth of either person's thought. So, handle this site with care. Although there's nothing wrong with getting to know what the liberals think. It's quite a good idea, actually. That way, we can disagree with them with integrity.
