A Theological Goldmine

Here is some news I just read from the people who make my favorite Bible software, BibleWorks:

“Princeton Theological Seminary has partnered with the Internet Archive to provide an online database called the Theological Commons digital library. It provides free, online access to over 50,000 theology and religion books from the PTS Library. This digital collection also includes about 100 rare seventeenth-century theological books from the private library of the late Professor Thomas Torrance, the father of PTS president Iain Torrance.”

This is a tremendous gift to anyone interested in doing serious theological, biblical study.  Many of these books are simply not available to folks like me due to money constraints. I have only spent a short time on the site but it appears that you can select any of the works and download it as a PDF or onto your Kindle. I tested the PDF right away and downloaded  a theology text from 1818 by John Leland that focuses on both natural and special revelation and the worship of God.

It is sites like this that make me give thanks to my Lord for bringing about the internet.  It is a generous gift from Princeton.  And it is a goldmine for any serious student of God’s Word.  Go visit the site yourself: Theological Commons
