About mePastor at Bethel Evangelical Church, Clydach, near Swansea, and I also work at the Evangelical Movement of Wales.
About my libraryMy library is organised by Dewey classification (except for those marked as unclassified). However, not all my Dewey numbers have been entered onto LibraryThing yet. Once this is done, I'll tag everything, using the Dewey numbers as a starting point.
The vast majority of my books are biblical/theological, and I'm currently researching The Gift of Prophecy in the New Testament, so there's plenty of books on that topic. Electronic books are tagged with libronix, quickverse, wordsearch or pradis.
If you're wondering how I got all my Logos/Libronix books into LibraryThing, here's how.
I tend to buy books - particularly commentaries - in series (both to save money and for completeness), even though you inevitably end up with some books that aren't quite as good as you hoped. The main series which I have in my library are:
Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament
International Critical Commentary
JPS Torah Commentary / JPS Bible Commentary
New International Commentary on the Old Testament
New International Commentary on the New Testament
New International Greek Testament Commentary
Pillar New Testament Commentary
Word Biblical Commentary
Middle of the Road
Bible Speaks Today*
IVP New Testament Commentary
New American Commentary
New International Biblical Commentary
NIV Application Commentary*
Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries
Tyndale New Testament Commentaries
Focus on the Bible*
Preaching the Word
Moffatt New Testament Commentary
Most of these I have as complete sets (as many volumes have been published, at any rate), though some sets not full. These I've marked with a star.
