Place Your Bid on the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge

Schaff CollectionFor more than a century, the Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge has set the standard for biblical and theological reference works.

In 1877, German theologian Johann Jakob Herzog asked Professor Philip Schaff to undertake an English reproduction of the second edition of Herzog’s Realencyklopadie fur protestantische Theologie und Kirche. Schaff’s work began in 1880, with the help of Clemens Petersen and Samuel Macauley Jackson.

Since then, this collection has seen the contributions of over 100 editors and 600 scholars, bringing together the most important scholarship from biblical studies, historical and doctrinal theology, archaeology, geography, church history, comparative religion, and more. The resulting work ranks among our time’s best-selling and most-cited Christian reference materials; it’s the first stop for pastors, teachers, parents, students, and scholars looking for comprehensive answers.

“The usefulness of this encyclopedia is to be found in its comprehensiveness. No extant work can match this. It is also particularly strong in biography, where it will be found an invaluable aid to investigation into the lives of the worthies of the past.”

Bibliotheca Sacra

“Indispensable . . . the best reference work in the entire field.”

    This is an awesome tool and the Logos system will make it even better. Whenever I look up a religious and rare topic on Wikepedia, if there is anything at all about it, the source for the information is from Schaff-Herzog.

    You can download this stuff from public domain websites, but this is not optimum. It is a pain to find find the correct volume, download it, then alphabetically sift through all the information to find the word and definition you want. This will not be so with the Logos system.

    Order this and get this to pre-pub. Please.
    Make me a happy camper!
    Well, I’m content in Christ, but you get the picture.
