In My Own Words:
I'm a student at Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY. My research interests are in medieval church history and the archaeology of the same period, especially in the British Isles. You can read more of my reviews at Blogcritics.org, or on my own site at pewview.mu.nu.

I've been reading a lot of computer books thanks to my gig as a reviewer for Blogcritics.org. I'm also reading more mystery and thriller than before -- but I always have time for alternate history, science fiction, and good non-fiction.

A History of the Baptists by Robert G. Torbet
A History of the Baptists by Robert G. Torbet
First of all, I don't know what book the reviewer from South Carolina read. Torbet distances himself from so-called Baptist successionism in the very first chapter of the book. He traces the developement of the modern Baptist church to the Particular Baptists in England.
This is an outstanding overview of not only the history of the denomination, but the developement of the "Baptist Distinctives" that set Baptists apart from other evangelical denominations.

Lost in a Good Book: A Thursday Next Novel by Jasper Fforde
I absolutely devoured this book. Within three days of receiving it from the Sci-Fi Book Club, I was done, licking my chops and waiting for the Well of Lost Plots to arrive.
If you didn't like the first book, my advice is don't waste your time and money with this one. The jokes are similar, the attitude toward literature is the same, the characters (and most of the characterization) are the same.
This is an easy world to get lost in. I've found myself wondering, as I read other books, about what the characters would do if they were in our world, or how they would interact with other fictional characters. The idea of Jurisfiction is brilliant, and there is no limit to the… Read more
Microsoft Links 2003 Championship Courses by Microsoft
I love golf. I absolutely stink at it, but I love it. A bad day on the golf course is still better than a good day at work.
I love Links 2K3. The course converter (which comes with the Links 2003 game, on CD #3 I believe, for anyone who is interested...) means that I can use older courses. This offering from Microsoft means that I have a ton of courses to play in addition to the older ones.
In fact, the only Microsoft course I DON'T like is Mesa Roja. Of course, I don't know too many Links players who do.
If you like this game, check out the Links Course Center at sportsplanet. More courses than you can shake a (golf) stick at! You'll never have to play the same one… Read more
