New Books by our Faculty, Alumni and Staff

We use this page to highlight some of the new books published by our UPSem faculty, staff members and alumni/ae.  The tradition of serious academic writing here through the years has produced a very strong corpus of scholarship in many of the disciplines of theology, biblical studies, history and pastoral studies.

We will also feature news about articles or chapters in edited volumes, plus publishing awards and other distinctions gained by these authors as they are announced.
