A treasure trove

Truth remains relevant, no matter how much time elapses.

The John Richard Allison Library in Vancouver—which hosts the joint collections of Regent College and Carey Theological College—has now made available their entire rare Puritan collection to be read online for free. What a gift of modern technology to help us recover these gifts from the church of the past.

There are currently 80 Puritan authors in their collection, many of whose works were digitized from J. I. Packer’s private library.

Now I know what I’ll probably be doing with part of my summer break.  Hope all of you get a chance to mine these riches yourselves.  For everyone’s convenience, I’ve added a link to this collection on the sidebar, under the “Reading Room” heading.  It’s referenced as “Puritan Books Online.”
