Reformed Book Reviews is a blog dedicated to publishing reviews of works of theology, history and the occasional piece of fiction. Let me tell you a little about myself:
My name is Mike, and I’m an inveterate reader of books; as a matter of fact, when I was a child and I acted up, my parents’ favorite punishment was to take my books away so I couldn’t read. In the interest of full disclosure, I should note that they did forget to take away the shampoo bottles in the shower, and thus I know far more than I probably should about what goes into Pert shampoo.
I’m currently completing my M.Div. (Master of Divinity), and hold a Th.B. (Bachelor of Theology) in Dogmatics, with a minor in textual criticism. As such, I’m deeply passionate about the original languages of Scripture and theological education, whether that be formal (college and seminary) or informal, as much of my education was initially. Because I desire to see your everday Christian move past biblical and theological ignorance and illiteracy, I particularly focus on reviewing works of an academic theological nature, as well as more popular Christian works that are meant to present more recondite topics in a clear and easy to understand fashion.
In an ideal world, I’ll be able to post one or two reviews a month, either of proofs that I’ve been approved for by NetGalley, or books that I’m reading on my own. Occasionally, though not often, there may be a piece of commentary on current events in the Reformed and Presbyterian world.
I hope you enjoy!
