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.
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.
I have been making good progress on The Book Room (library) at particularbaptist.com – more than I would have expected to this point. Be sure to keep looking around – it is being improved, reviewed and updated on a very regular basis.
A lot of work has been completed on ‘The Book Room,’ which is the online library of particularbaptist.com. Most of the infrastructure (the actual web pages) is once again in place. A good number of the pages have had all of the links checked (dates for latest link checking are at the top of the page) and on these pages they all work, with the exception of those resources hosted at particularbaptist.com – these will require a good amount of work to make ready for the site.
Some of the pages that are up (a good number in fact) have yet to have the various links checked or to have the actual page reviewed and/or updated. I thought it would be useful to have the actual pages up regardless, as some of the resources linked to will still be valuable and actually available – even though that will not be the case for all of them. At least the library is finally working again and will continue to improve over time.
I have plans to greatly improve the usefulness of the library, but again, this will be a painstaking and possibly slow process.
Most of the site is now up and working again, though undoubtedly not all of the links are working yet. More content needs to be review and/or updated before becoming available again on the site. I am working on it though. Hopefully there will also be much more new content coming online as well. I’ll continue to work on the site over this holiday weekend and beyond.
The area of the site that will take the most work to update has now been reached. ‘The Book Room,’ which is the library page at particularbaptist.com, is a library of both links to resources around the World Wide Web and online content hosted on our site. I have a lot of work to do to get this valuable resource pool back online and available to our visitors.
I’m not sure when I will have all of this content back online, though I expect the infrastructure of the library will be in place by the end of this weekend. Content hosted at particularbaptist.com will be linked to, though may not be immediately available – as each resource will require considerable work to make it available again. Previously these works were available in HTML – I now hope to have them available in PDF.
After a lot of work I have the main page of ‘The Book Room’ up and functional at particularbaptist.com. It has taken me two years to get this back up (it used to be simply the library) at least. Not all of the links are working in the directories, but I wanted the links ready to go as the various pages came back online.
