What I Read Online – 03/14/2012 (p.m.)

    • The Theological Commons is a digital library of 50,022 books on theology and  religion.
    • Just as many authors of the new psychiatry “bible” are tied to the drugs industry as those who worked on the previous version, a study has found, despite new transparency rules.


      The findings raise concerns over the independence of the revamped Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM, published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA) and scheduled for publication in May 2013.

    • Professor Ulrich Gäbler was President of the University of Basel, Switzerland and held chairs in Church History at the Free University of Amsterdam and the University of Basel. He has published fifteen books and 100 articles on a range of topics in religious history from the Middle Ages to the present. He specialises in the history of the Reformation, Pietism, Revivalism and Evangelicalism. He is best known for his work on the Swiss reformer Huldrych Zwingli (1484-1531).
        Professor Gäbler’s lecture will focus on the interaction of the external circumstances of Calvin¹s life (e.g. persecution, exile, homelessness) and the shaping of his theological thinking (especially church discipline, predestination, church and state). The underlying thesis is that one can only understand Calvin by taking seriously the permanent impact of his social and political context.
