Scripture, Theology, the Christian worldview, and other ramblings.

Reformation Theology & Books!

John Hendryx at Monergism.com has put together a great reading list to help develop a "well-rounded Christian worldview".

I have always been a reader, before and after God converted me to Christ. Since being a Christian, my library has grown full of theological works, some I have read, others I have not. Lately, I have felt convicted to read those books that I have not yet started. What use are they if they simply sit on my bookshelf and collect dust?

Reading books is a blessing in this day and age. To be able to sit, with a hot cup of tea, and enjoy a book written hundreds of years ago by a man who's singular focus was God, and His glory, is simply refreshing. It is a discipline lost on most Christians today.

I have been reading Thomas Watson lately and it is like finding a gold mine of treasure. Reading through the Psalms has been an absolute blessing as well. To see God's manifold greatness is awe inspiring and humbling all at once. This should be our thought pattern as we read Scripture, in humble submission to our Creator. I highly recommend you "tolle legge" this week, and pray God will illumine your mind to His almighty Word.

SDG,
Joe

Joe,
You have hit the nail on the head. I think of C.S. Lewis who wrote against "chronological snobbery." That is, just because something is old does not make it bad.

It seems that you're a solid guy and familiar with wikis. Would you perhaps be interested in helping out with Tulipedia (http://www.tulipedia.org/Main_Page) or Theopedia (http://www.theopedia.com/Main_Page) ? :)
Pages are owned by the same guy who owns biggerGod.com which you link to (and who is a good friend of mine).
