Gold Mine

Boy, I just found a gold mine today. The Thomas Watson Collection at Bible Bulletin Board. I have recently become a fan of Watson after my pastor recommended his work A Godly Man's Picture. Watson has a way with words that is sorely missing from many of today's Reformed authors. I find many modern day writers are simply too verbose, taking three pages to explain something Watson or Spurgeon could explain in one page (and with better quality I might add...). Additionally, many modern Reformed writers are academics, not pastors or laymen. Don't get me wrong, there is a place for academia, but academia should be for equipping ministers to proclaim the Gospel of Grace, not to equip them to be able to impress their fellow professors in the academic community with 800 page works on a topic that really only needs a couple hundred pages of good, solid, pithy exegesis and thoughtful commentary. There is simply too much novelty these days, not only in academic circles, but on the web as well. Alas, I digress...

I would recommend reading Watson. He had a heart for the flock of Christ, and it shows in his writings.

SDG,
Joe
