This blog is pretty simple. It’s about books. We love to read books. We should state up front, however, that while we do find ourselves reading a variety of books (from books about WWII, to Lord Nelson’s Navy, to Dave Barry), this blog is about theological and Biblical studies.

Both of us are graduates from Westminster Seminary in California, and while there, we found a great deal of satisfaction reading and discussing the materials either assigned or alluded to in class. This blog is a venue to continue three years of random discussions about books, but there is one twist – now you all are also invited to join in!

We’ll be approaching the books on this blog from a confessionally Reformed perspective (i.e., we’re Protestant Christians in the Reformed tradition associated with the Three Forms of Unity and the Westminster Standards). We won’t just be reading books by Reformed authors, but every book we discuss will be approached from the Reformed perspective.

So come on in. Join the comment threads. Toss in your 2 cents. Lets keep an amiable atmosphere here in the reading room. Disagreement is fine. Disrespect is not. Enjoy, and feel free to give feedback!
