For nearly fifteen years I have tried—without success—to get people interested in Hasting’s Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics.
It began when I was cornered at a conference by a pair of seminary professors who marveled that we had neglected a Logos edition of Hastings’ Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics. I went online and purchased a print edition and started to use it myself with great enjoyment. Since then I have placed this set on and off Pre-Pub a number of times without success—yet I keep trying.
It is one of the finest reference sets produced in the last century. It is still one of the most quoted reference sets in the field of religion and biblical studies to this day. Over the years, many scholars and professors have commented on the many articles in this series which are addressed in no other reference work. It is a popular goto series for our own writers and researchers.
Why won’t this set make it through Pre-Pub? One problem is that the series has always been a library resource. Not that many private copies were ever sold. With a retail value of nearly $800, it has been out of reach for all but the most ardent enthusiasts. Perhaps, together, we can bring this fine work within reach of everyone.
I know you are probably not interested in spending $800 for a collection you have never heard of, but maybe you would be interested at $20, $30, or $40. I know I would. Help us save this set for future generations. Take the opportunity to bid for this set for pennies on the dollar.
Community Pricing ensures you will never pay an amount higher than your bid and you may even win the opportunity to purchase at a lower price if enough people participate. The only way to lose out is to bid lower than the final price that covers production costs.
With Hastings’ Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics (13 vols.) available on your ipod, Iphone, iPad, or Android device—you could be a walking encyclopedia yourself!
