A fun Discovery

Way back when I was still in college, in the spring of 2001, I was an exchange student in Oxford. Aside from that being an incredibly cool experience in itself, that's also where I started learning what it meant to be reformed and realizing that I thought I was reformed. (And, the same time that my parents started attending RMCC ... God works in mysterious ways!)

The church I attended in Oxford was St. Ebbe's, and the rector was a man by the name of Vaughan Roberts. This was where they talked about their friend "Jim Packer" and had evangelistic meetings in pubs. Very cool.

The other day, I was buzzing around on the internet and came across some books by Vaughan Roberts ... it took me a while to realize why I recognized the name, but I got it. He has several books published by IVP, two of which I'm intrigued by -- Life's Big Questions: Six Major themes traced through the Bible, and God's Big Picture: Tracing the Story-Line of the Bible. They seem like very accessible books on biblical theology ... so someday I plan to check 'em out.
