Resource for Bible and books
I have had false starts with this project because unlike some people, I don't seem to have the ego to see it through. I feel presumptuous writing it without other people desiring me to write it. So, if you want me to write this book, let me know via the comments here or via the email form.
I have been working on a book on Preterism for some time now. I'd like to share the introduction with my readers. There is more to the book, but this is just a taste of it so far.
Roderick Edwards spent 15 years within the Full or Hyper-Preterist movement. His writings while all online were very profuse and varied on topics many Preterist writers never thought to consider; such as the validity of pastors if indeed the Chief Shepherd came in AD70.
Edwards always held a strained relationship with many of the “leaders” within the movement because of his propensity to push the theory of Hyper-preterism to its logical conclusions.
In about 2007, Edwards officially renounced Hyper-preterism and began trying to undo some of the damage he has done. This has made him an enemy not only of the Hyper-preterists, but also of many of the so-called “Partial-Preterists” whom he points to as having aided in the advancement of Hyper-preterism.
This book will give the reader a clear, and honestly critical view not only of Hyper-preterism but of Preterism in general and how it is affecting and will affect Christianity in general.

Arguments aren't simply disagreements, but propositions. An argument is any point that is being made. It need not be a negative or hostile point.
I recently re-read a little book by Anthony Weston called, A Rulebook for Arguments. It appears he published the first edition in 1986. I have the third edition published in 2000.
Perhaps the best free software I've found for helping to manage or organize your ebooks is an open source program called Calibre. Calibre was created by Kovid Goyal in 2006 and has ever-since been developed by a team of open source enthusiasts.
Although Calibre is a combination of the word libre, meaning freedom, thus indicating its free open-source nature, Goyal suggests it be pronounced Cali-ber.
This is a chapter-by-chapter review of the book "The Shape of Sola Scriptura" by Keith Mathison. This review began on March 30, 2009 & is expected to end before September 2009.
The purpose for the review is to enhance Bible study by first studying how to approach the Bible. In modern Evangelical denominations, it is common to take a "private interpretation" approach where every individual gives their own private interpretation & then perhaps shares it with a larger group. Sometimes, all such interpretations are considered equally valid. This method is NOT what the Reformers had in mind when they articulated Sola Scriptura (Bible Alone). The Reformers did not intend to divorce Bible interpretation from historic Christian interpretation but merely question Papal/Church infallibility.
In 2004, Keith Mathison published a book by himself & five contributors. The book is called "When Shall These Things Be? - A Reformed Response to Hyper-Preterism". Since 2004, hyperpreterists have sought to respond to the response but as of yet the hyperpreterists have been unsuccessful in not only publishing a response but even in getting together in enough unity to write a response. At this present time, there are at least 3 separate teams by hyperpreterists that seek to publish a response. As a side note, hyperpreterist "scholar" Sam Frost has actually been a member of ALL 3 PROJECTS -- either being kicked off of one & moving to another or going to another when it seems likely they may actually publish first. Well folks, you need not wait any longer. I beat them all to it AND you don't have to buy it. IT'S FREE! Please click either the MSWord or PDF link to read my 35 page review/response of WSTTB. I hope to have brought some unique perspective to the review as:
LISTEN TO THE REVIEW READ TO YOU:
Perhaps the best way to get to know what makes a person who they are is to see what influences have been part of their life, in that frame I would like to share my theological library with you. What follows is a list of all of the theological/philosophical books currently in my library. This doesn't mean I haven't read other material beyond what is listed. I may have loaned/given away other books that I no longer possess or I may simply have forgotten about reading them. I currently do much of my reading online where I can immediately cross-reference what I am reading.
