Current Reading

As I'm very interested in English and Scottish church history I've been reading The Death of Christian Britain by Callum G. Brown. I'm only 70 pages into it but its been rather absorbing & enjoyable so far. However, I find looking in the index that Spurgeon is only mentioned one time in what I would describe as an otherwise detailed book. Only one mention of Spurgeon, probably the most important 19th century theologian, in a book of 200+ pages of British church history leaves me doubting it's accuracy and whether the author really has any true historical insight. I'll press one to see what the author reveals.

I'm also reading The Wit of Martin Luther. It's a short book and I leave it for bedtime reading but its loads of fun.
