Taking a Break


Hi all – just a quick note for those who are alert and have noticed a lack of posts recently. I am taking a short break to try and ensure continued good health and head off a possible decline (there have been a few recent signs) in it. So currently I need to get a lot of good sleep and rest, so a short break is in order. I do feel I am improving, so the break shouldn’t be too long. See you soon (which isn’t really correctly – Hopefully I’ll be posting again soon).

The Book Room: Update


The particularbaptist.com Blog

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…

Moving Break


I will be taking a break from Blogging for the next 2 to 3 weeks. It has become necessary for me to move home and this will be taking place over this period – so it’s packing, cleaning, transporting, etc, for the next few weeks. I may be able to get back to Blogging before 3 weeks, we’ll see how the move all goes. There is a lot to do though.

Situation Update


My trip away has not been great, as I fell ill on the very first day and quickly went downhill from there. I was close to a trip to the emergency department at one stage, though things have now greatly improved. I am currently undergoing treatment and need time to recover fully. So it looks like I will be away from the Blog for another week. Back soon – I hope 🙂

Currently Reading: Five Points – Towards a Deeper Experience of God’s Grace by John Piper


We are starting a new book in the reading group.

Particular Baptist Reading Group

This week we start reading the small book, ‘Five Points – Towards a Deeper Experience of God’s Grace,’ by John Piper. This week we read the first two chapters (‘Preface’ and ‘Historical Roots’).

If you don’t have a copy you can get a free PDF file of the book at the Desiring God website. I always try to source a book to read in this group that is available for free somewhere so that everyone can participate with little cost or difficulty.

You can obtain a free copy of this book at:

Computer Problems


The latest Windows 10 update has basically trashed my computer. The update was installed automatically, so I wasn’t expecting it to happen. I had just turned the computer on and when I returned to it after allowing it to boot, there it was ‘installing.’ Anyhow, it failed and the computer is now unusable.

So what this means is that I will not be able to post in the ‘usual’ way for some time – very disappointing.
