Lucas: An Evangelical History Review was first issued in November 1987 and it publishes two issues a year, depending on submissions. It is peer-reviewed and enjoys an international distribution. Its focus is on the history of Australian evangelicalism, but it does publish quality submissions on the wider history of evangelicalism. It also welcomes submissions on the topic of evangelicalism and methodology.

On this website are the articles from the back issues of Lucas which cover up to the last three years of issue. They are listed by author, so click on the appropriate alphabet tab (top right of page/left hand side for phones) and find your author. Click on the author's name and a page will appear with a list of all the articles in Lucas for that author. Find the article you are interested in and click on the link provided and the appropriate article will appear.

PLEASE NOTE: The search facility provided by Google is in the top right hand corner but frankly it doesn't give satisfactory service. A work around this shortcoming is; on Lucas-Archive to go to Listing (click), Listing of Lucas Articles (click), pdf file appears, Ctrl F, type the term or subject you are interested in, press enter, results (if any will be highlighted).

My thanks to those who sacrificed their historic hard copies of Lucas to make this site complete.
