Update from Caleb on the Works of JE Online

The Works of Jonathan Edwards Online is a few short weeks away from being made available worldwide. Our 1000+ Beta testers have responded with great enthusiasm to the content and usability of the Works Online and have also made some very helpful constructive critiques which we have incorporated into our final revision of the site design. We have received positive reviews from all over the USA, Europe, Brazil, Japan, and Korea. Our hope is that we can provide a globally valuable resource for use by readers of Edwards everywhere.

Over the last several months, we have also been refining the onscreen presentation of the texts as well as adding years of editorial knowledge into the texts themselves through the use of theme tagging. We believe that this will prove to be one of the most powerful features of the site, enabling people to get what they want, when they want it, how they want it. JE would be proud!

In other news (and I will speak vaguely here) we have recently seen some very exciting developments with another major evangelical editorial project which we expect to result in a consortial partnership in the near future. Watch this space for details!

We are also currently soliciting interns for the academic year 2006-2007. Anyone interested should write to edwards (at] yale dot edu.
