Hah! Phil Johnson and Justin Taylor aren't the only ones...

...who stumble onto cool things!

Check out Dallas Theological Seminary's interactive library of rare books. Range, content, interactivity — there's nothing about it that isn't cool!

(PS — it really is a mystery to me how Justin and Phil so consistently come up with ultra-cool things, and still have lives and ministries. Paid informants?)

Thanks! That's a great collection (Edwards, Ironside and more). I'd usually shudder at the idea of reading a book on the computer screen but with the way it's set up it feels natural.

Hmmmm, this just might remove our primary excuse/need for returning to the DTS campus--leaving more to shop at the used bookstores in town! Thanks,I'll pass this info. and link on to hubby! :-)

Very cool. I'm impressed that little time is needed to load or turn the pages.

Good find, Dan!

I was going to make some smart-alecky comment about how most of the books are probably dispensationalist in character (judging by the list of keywords on the main page, that appears to be the case!), but I notice the one book by Edwards is his History of Redemption—is that related to his uncompleted magnum opus, History of the Work of Redemption?

cool factor? a solid twelve.

Thanks Dan
