Indexes to CHRISTADELPHIAN Magazines,
Books, Videos, CDs and Pamphlets
(now in Excel
& Internet friendly*)

Now that the Christadelphian magazine is available on CD you may think this index redundant. But it includes 2001-2005 and indexing for 8 other important magazines plus over 1000 books, pamphlets, and videos not available on CD.

Now released, with thousands of additions and over 2,600 pages, the 2006 edition of this powerful and popular tool which helps you to locate in the Truth's literature, material written on a given subject or verse.

Here is what some brothers and sisters are saying about the indexes:
 

"Having just installed our indices from the disk prepared by bro. Aleck Crawford, we cannot recommend buying this disk enough. We have used bro. Aleck's hardcopy indices for many years, and have found them to be among the most useful, practical, reference works ever devised. It has been a mammoth task. The price is a bargain."
    A Christadelphian Bookseller, UK
"The next thing to my Bible,  and Concordance comes your Index.  I use them a lot as  I am fortunate in having a full set of magazines..."
    Editor of a Christadelphian Magazine


The Magazine index is a very important tool for the Christadelphian student who has access to any of the nine magazines covered. Our periodicals are of little use without an index as to what they contain. For example you might say where did I read about "Mariolatry-Old Babylon with a new emphasis"? You think it was in the Testimony, but after two hours of searching you have not found it. Using your computer and a simple host application, say Excel, Word 97+ or Access, a search on Mariolatry will give you the answer in seconds: not in a magazine but in the book Rome and Jerusalem, page 32. This is a complete product which covers from the beginning of the magazines to the end of 2005 or when they ceased publication.

The Book index is even more popular than the Magazine index perhaps because people find they have access to more books than magazines. In addition to the subject index and Bible quote index, it has an up to date list of publishers and suppliers where you can obtain the book or pamphlet you are after. It contains a list of over 1,000 books and pamphlets by title. A great aid for librarians, speakers, writers, and even Sunday School scholars.

May these indexes save you many hours of frustrating searches through your magazines or books and may that time be used in preparing better material to the praise of our heavenly Father. The time is short...

Sample instructions on how to put this data into a Data base

* Now Internet friendly in the sense that I now provide email addresses/Web URL where known. Be aware that the Net changes every day. Also if you have a data base I provide the facility to display email/or URL for a publisher. There are a number of online publications now and this index allows you to locate them using my previous searce criteria of keyword or Book-chapter-verse in index format. This maximizes the potential hits over search engine facilities which are still pretty basic.
