About Me: 

Retired CRC Nigeria missionary.  Author--see  www.SocialTheology.com.  Pages:  Boeriana, Kuyperiana, Islamica, Reformational15/15.  The website is combination of personal info and the site of the ONLINE REFORMATIONAL ACADEMIC LIBRARY. Latter is a library of Reformational philosophy and liberal arts topics shared with the global  adademic community. It is still expanding.  Apart from this library, very little of this literature is accessible to academics throughout most of the world. Western Reformationals publish wonderful books, including translations of classics likes Kuyper and Bavinck, but those books hardly get beyond NA shores and where they occasionally do, they are too expensive. This Online Library is the solution by making it all available everywhere, incl. China, free of charge.  What more do you want?
