There has been so much happening at ‘The Book Room,’ here at particularbaptist.com. So much that there isn’t enough time to settle down into a blow by blow description. All across the library (The Book Room) section of the site there have been improvements, link checks and additions, extra content added, projects completed and others begun. So the best thing to do is pop over to The Book Room and have a look around. Work is continuing at quite a pace, so be sure to check back often for more.
So what are a couple of the highlights?:
– ‘The Life of William Farel,’ by Melchior Kirchhoffer, has now been completed and is available via HTML, PDF and on the Scribd platform (accessible via The Book Room). Find this via Church History at The Book Room.
– ‘Foxe’s Book of Martyrs,’ by John Foxe is being greatly improved, with a much better second version of the book currently being added to the site. This will also be available in HTML and PDF formats, as well as on the Scribd platform. Find this via Church History at The Book Room.
– ‘Memoirs of the Life, Times and Writings of Thomas Boston of Ettrick,’ by Thomas Boston is also currently being added to the site in both HTM and PDF formats, and will also be available on the Scribd platform. Find this via Church History at The Book Room.
– There is also a wealth of resources available via the various directories in the church history section of The Book Room (Charles Haddon Spurgeon, Thomas Boston, John Bunyan, Richard Sibbes, etc – to name just a few).
So there is plenty happening and plenty to check out at The Book Room
I have been working steadily away on the various pages of ‘The Book Room’ (the Library) and making some useful progress. The number of broken links is incredible – resources that are no longer available or moved elsewhere at the various sites linked to. Slow progress, but progress none-the-less. One of the pages I have actually completed is the ‘John Bunyan Directory.’ This is what I am hoping to duplicate across The Book Room part of the site. I think it will be really useful to visitors of the site.
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.

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.
To view this book visit:
‘The Preacher and His Models,’ by James Stalker.
The section of the site known as ‘What Happened Today in Church History,’ which is part of the Church History Institute section of particularbaptist.com has now been completely updated and is fully functional online. Many hours have been spent getting this work completed and I am very thankful it is again up and running.
Now onto the next thing.

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.

The theology section of the site has now been updated, with the exception of ‘The Book Room – Theology Page,’ which is really part of the library section of the site, linked to from the theology page. The library section is my next project and this begins now.
For more visit:
The updates to the site are continuing and now the Bible Studies section has been completed. Of course the Bible Studies themselves are hosted at Scribd, which provides a much easier way for me to update and add to them over time.
The sermons section has also been completed.
