One of the stated purposes of EMNR is education. To fulfill this purpose, and facilitate the continuing education of our membership, EMNR presents a collection of research papers addressing various aspects of religious studies, specifically in the area of new religious movements and world religions. These papers come from a variety of sources, including those delivered at EMNR's annual conference, papers from the Society for the Study of Alternative Religion presented during the annual conference of the Evangelical Theological Society, various publications, and Internet sites. New research papers will be added to this collection over time.

Those papers that appear on this page in their entirety (as distinguished from those that are linked to from this page) are included with the appropriate copyright permission from the individual authors. The thoughts and views expressed by the authors in this section do not necessarily reflect the views of the EMNR board of Directors and/or its member organizations, nor should their inclusion here be taken as an endorsement of same by the EMNR Board of Directors and/or its member organizations. This collection is placed here for the purposes of research and the free exchange of ideas. Readers are encouraged to read them carefully and thoughtfully and to exercise discernment.

EMNR members are encouraged to read these research papers and to incorporate worthwhile insights into their individual ministries.
