Concordia Publishing House Offers a Hand in Partnership to the Professional and Academic Community
Saint Louis, MO—As the 500th anniversary of Reformation approaches, Concordia Publishing House (CPH) unveils cph.org/academic, a new multi-use website to serve Christian scholars. In addition to offering textbooks and research published by CPH, the site also lists publications by theology professors of the Concordia University System and seminaries. Christian scholars will also find information on Lutheran translation projects, news related to confessional Lutheran research and publishing, examination copies, and how to submit manuscripts to Concordia Publishing House for publication.
"Concordia's new academic site was designed to aid Christian scholars in service to the Church and academy," said Dr. Benjamin T. G. Mayes, editor for Luther's Works and Gerhard's Commonplaces. "Our hope is that professors, pastors, students, and 'armchair theologians' will be well served by it. Concordia Publishing House is a key partner for confessional Lutheran universities and seminaries. We are excited that they use our resources and delighted that they choose CPH to publish their textbooks and research."
Concordia Publishing House offers textbooks for biblical languages, Reformation and Luther studies, church history, and much more. In addition, CPH is expanding the availability of Luther in the English language through the continuation of the American edition of Luther's Works. The website offers information on this series as well as two other monumental projects: the Concordia Commentary series (biblical commentary) and the translation of Johann Gerhard's Theological Commonplaces (classic Lutheran systematic theology). Visit cph.org/academic to find out about special discounts available to subscribers of these series.
At cph.org/academic scholars and professors will find current information on new releases, the process for requesting examination copies, and guidelines for submitting their research for consideration for publication.
