Thanks for pointing it out. Hopefully it will be around for a while at this price. Sometimes, even a few dollars is hard to come by, other times, a few dollars can be lost and not missed. Smile

For those who bought this, how long on average are these books? Would you describe them more as full-length books, short treatises, tracts, or something else?

EDIT: I know this is probably a really long shot, but are any of these tagged as systematic theologies?

Haven't looked at all of them, but some/most of these books seem to be full-length (e.g. EY Mullins' "Axioms of religion" or BH Carroll's "Baptists and their doctrines" or a biography I saw), however, at least two of them are "replicated": the 426 pages of "Baptist why and why not" come again as 25 chapter-length booklets (e.g. "Why Baptist and not Methodist" etc., with the original page numbers) and the 454 pages of "Madison Avenue Lectures" come again as 18 chapter-length booklets as well. So two seemingly extremely valuable thick books with together 860 pages count for 45 of the 115 books in the library.  Still, I think it's a steal for that price.

No argument that it is a steal for the price, but the decision to turn individual chapters into their own separate resources seems somewhat at odds with the marketing material on the product page:

"The editors of the Roger Williams Heritage Archives have attempted to maintain the original appearance as much as possible in the conversion to an electronic format."

Oh well, I will most likely buy it later today. Anyone know of other packages like this that offer similar value but are focused on other religious groups?

Not necessarily as they may have been published for use on Sundays with the knowledge that at the end of the cycle they would be published as a book.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
