New on our virtual shelves is this compilation of essays examining the issue of leadership within the matrix of religious denominations, organizations, and movements in North America. Our own Prof. Zscheile has contributed an essay, "Christian Biblical Understandings of Leadership."
Twentieth Century Religious Thought is our newest database. This collection includes materials related to key worldwide religious thinkers from the early 1900s until the turn of the 21st century. The collection reflects the increasingly global and pluralistic character of religious scholarship.
Records from the Reformation Research Library, North America's most extensive collections of sixteenth century imprints in microform, have been added to our new library catalog.
Since 1986, Luther Seminary's Reformation Research Program has been building this collection of over 42,000 titles to meet the needs of researchers.
Thanks especially to Mary Ann Teske who spent countless hours doing some final cleanup as well as Ted Wilder, Director of the Office of Technology and Dr. Mary Jane Haemig, Director of the Reformation Research Program for working with the library to make this project possible.

The new titles are:
