Hi

Is anyone else here a subscriber to Questia at www.questia.com. I've found it very useful as it has loads of books digitised that I don't normally have access to, including material by Meyendorff, Schmemann, Yves Congar and many many others.

It's well worth a look. I'm not leaving my username so this isn't an advert for it that I will benefit from at all. It just is really useful for all amateur theologians and church historians.

Slava Isusu Christu!

Wow!

I do believe I'm going to talk to our head librarian about subscribing to this.  I work in a law firm but occasionally we have requests for non-legal publications that aren't even on Lexis/Westlaw, some of which I see here on questia.com.

Hopefully I can convince her to subscribe, so I can delve into the theological stuff on the company tab ;)

It's not so expensive but it does mean that there's lots of useful books. journals, magazines and encyclopaedias available.

I've been using it for about 18 months now in a variety of study contexts and have found it invaluable.

I could never get hold of many of these books otherwise, or at least not without spending lots of dosh and then discovering it wasn't what I realy wanted.
