How many theological books do you have access to? (Count the Bible, by all means.)
When they did their work, the great theologians of the past—people like Augustine and Thomas—had access to libraries of a few hundred or perhaps a thousand manuscripts.
Well, you have access to the brand-new Theological Commons at Princeton Theological Seminary, a free library of more than 50 thousand books on theology and religion. From the website:
The Theological Commons is a digital initiative of the Princeton Theological Seminary Library. Begun in 2011, its purpose is to improve access to the digital and non-digital material held in the Library and, in particular, to bring Princeton Seminary’s digital collections together in a single more convenient framework, making searching and viewing of those collections easier and quicker.
In the women’s Bible study today, I mentioned the Geneva Bible and how King James didn’t like it because it wasn’t especially royalty-friendly. But don’t take my word for it. Look for yourself at the footnote to Exodus 1:19 we talked about, from the Theological Commons site. (If you have trouble with that link, come in the front door and search for the Geneva Bible, then navigate to page 43.)
