Bibliophiles dream come true

This is so good as to be almost embarrassing.
I've just been awarded a $1,000 bursary to buy books from the Presbyterian College bookstore. Well, it's not just the Presy bookstore - it's actually run by a group of people from the Reformed church, so it's full of high Calvinist theology - the Puritans, Iain Murray, Banner of Truth, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Jim Packer, Michael Horton... all that sort of thing. Check out their website: http://www.reformers.com.au/.
They see their mission as propagating good ol' fashioned Reformed theology. As part of that, they give students in their first of study at the Presy college a $1,000 bursary to buy books from them. Generous Reformed people propagating Reformed theology...! These are the sorts of books that made me decide to be Presbyterian in the first place. Now I can stock up on some more!
Right - let's go shopping...

Your blog was a real encouragement to me, brother. We've worked really hard over the past couple of years to add to the range. As well as the historic titles, Reformers holds thousands of contemporary reformed titles also. For example: Good News Crossway, IVP UK, Eerdmans, Good Book Company UK. If you're at the PTC in 2009, then check it out, and enjoy your bursary.

The LORD bless you in His ministry in your part of His vineyard.
