Library of Historical Apologetics

This looks like an amazing resource, coordinated by Tim McGrew. Here is what they say about themselves:

At the Library of Historical Apologetics, our mission is to be the world’s leading resource for lay apologists, pastors, students, and scholars seeking historical apologetics materials for self-study, church classes, sermon preparation, and research. Our digital collection currently contains references to about 3,000 items with a focus on works in English from the 17th through the early 20th centuries.

Beyond simply providing access to these materials, our long-term vision is to create a digital learning environment that incorporates personal and collaborative reading, note taking, and study tools. We want to support a community in which more experienced scholars help newcomers find the material they need and construct secondary resources such as curricula, study guides, and course syllabi that can be shared by all users.

This project is directed by Dr. Timothy McGrew, who is Professor of Philosophy at Western Michigan University, where he has taught since 1995, serving as department chairman from 2005-2009. The Institute for Digital Christian Heritage is providing technical and administrative assistance in the form of project planning, implementation and evaluation.

Hello, Mr. McGrew. I have also seen the 'Library of Historical Apologetics' posted over at Prosblogion and over at Victor Reppert's blog 'Dangerous Idea'. I believe you know Mr. Reppert.

It's great having a Website like that where it makes things accessible. I'll make sure to roam through and read some of the works that's available on the site.
