The Global Center for Religious Research is excited to announce the release of our latest issue of the peer-reviewed academic journal, Socio-Historical Examination of Religion and Ministry (SHERM). As a not-for-profit publication, SHERM publishes the latest social-scientific, historiographic, and ecclesiastic research on religious institutions and their ministerial practices. The journal is dedicated to the critical and scholarly inquiry of historical and contemporary religious phenomena, both from within particular religious traditions and across cultural boundaries, so as to inform the broader socio-historical analysis of religion and its related fields of study.
You can read each publication of SHERM for free online or purchase a print copy at a substantial discount!
