Theology from a Bunch of Dead Guys (Weekend Website)

I cannot remember when or how, but somewhere in college I stumbled accross this website: Theology from a Bunch of Dead Guys, or more officially titled, The Hall of Church History.  This was the first Christian website of its kind that I was introduced to, and as it was then, it is now– the premier spot for all things theological on the world-wide web.  From Calvin’s commentaries to The Fundamentals to Charles Spurgeon’s sermons (also maintained by PJ), Phil Johnson, a calvinistic Baptist himself, has an endless list of resources on his website.  

Theology from a Bunch of Dead Guys

Not to be confused with Darwin on Trial ‘s  Phillip Johnson, Phil Johnson is the Executive Director of “Grace to You,” John MacArthur’s daily radio program and an avid blogger at Pyromaniacs.  His website on theology and church history kicked off in 1995 and today contains hundreds of valuable links to excellent sights.  He categorizes them according to historical tradition: Catholic, Arminian, Reformers, Baptist, and even Heretics–which makes the searching easier.  Overall, his site is a launch pad for excellent, free, full-content resources online.

This makes a great resource for the seminarian who has limited finances, the rural pastor who has limited library access (especially to classic materials), or the pioneer missionary has limited space to store and/or carry all the books he wants.  So, in short, Theology from a Bunch of Dead Guys is a great resource and one you should stop by this weekend.
