The History of the English Baptists


I am back again working on the site after another lengthy sabbatical (as it were) – at least it wasn’t as lengthy a break as other times I guess. Still, back again.

This is only a very small update, yet an important one that is in preparation for the Particular Baptist Reading Group, which will be reading volume 2 of ‘The History of the English Baptists,’ by Thomas Crosby shortly. So the update has simply added links to the necessary pages at both The Book Room and the Church History Institute. So this just means that the particularbaptist.com website will have all of the links to these volumes on Baptist history.

Wider Church Updates


I have been working on the infrastructure of the ‘Wider Church’ part of the site, with the focus at this stage on Africa. Building the infrastructure for the Wider Church part of the site will take some time to complete, but I think the effort will be worth it and will provide the backbone for what I hope to achieve with it. I do believe this is a very important aspect of the site overall.

I have also been able to get a fair bit done over at ‘Kevin’s Portal’ also:

Work Has Finally Begun (Again)


The many months of frustration are other – my hosting issues have now been sorted and work has begun on the site once again. For quite some time, I had been unable to update ‘Kevin’s Portal’ and then it disappeared completely. I have finally been able to move that entire site over to the hosting service I use for everything else and it is all up again, along with a few improvements and continuing enhancements. I am just so pleased to have finally got it all sorted, as now I can get on with the work.

Slowly but surely this link will become available across all of my sites – I think all of the Blogs have been updated, along with a few other social networks and web applications (with many more to be updated).

I have also been working on the ‘Wider Church’ section of the site. I am keen to have a page for every nation of the world there eventually, along with various facts and pieces of information concerning the Lord’s work in these places (especially from a Reformed perspective). I will have RSS feeds concerning these countries from my Random Thoughts Blog, which will include various articles and videos on persecution in those countries. This will take time to achieve, but the work has begun.

Further Changes


After months of waiting for some web hosting issues to be sorted over at Kevin’s Portal (which currently isn’t working), so that changes I have been working on could be uploaded, it is clear that the site needs to be moved – which should happen shortly (to the hosts I use for my other sites, which do do a great job – JustHost.com). So once again there needs to be some changes to the site. Frustrating really.

The Book Room: Ecclesiology Update


I have been doing a bit of work on the ecclesiology section of ‘The Book Room,’ which of course is the library. There is still a little bit of work to do here, but this is progressing well and will be the first part of The Book Room that will be fully functional again. Hopefully this will be reached before the end of this coming week.

The most important update to this page today has been the completion of ‘The Preacher and His Models,’ by James Stalker, which is now available as a PDF file.

Some Improvements Here and There


I have been carrying out a few improvements across the site, with more content beginning to become available on the site. I know this is taking a long time and a lot of what was available before I moved hosting sites is still not available here. I’m hoping to accelerate this process to the best of my ability – however, personal circumstances have prevented this to this point and it has frustrated me admittedly.

In the last few days there have been some minor improvements to the Wider Church section, the library and a couple of other spots. Hopefully as these improvements continue the overall site will begin to become more useful more quickly also.

John Bunyan Directory Updated


After another extended break (thanks to poor health) I have returned to work on the site once again. I have done some work on The Book Room section of the site – though there is still a lot more work to be done. I am working my way through, what I think is probably the most important section of the site, bit by bit and carefully also.

The most significant work that I have completed in The Book Room section of the site would be the ‘John Bunyan Directory.’ All links in this section of The Book Room are now working, though I must emphasis that ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’ is the work I am currently working on, so return frequently for updates on that work. Sections are being added to Pilgrim’s Progress as our associated reading group works our way through it.
