If I had one wish, it would be that there would be a library near Brenham that held only theological books. I want it to be less than an hour from Brenham and, for good measure, I want it to hold 150,000 books. I also want it to have wood floors. Mahogany bookshelves. Host lectures from the best theological minds around the world. It would be great if there was a kitchen nearby, and maybe a chapel. Impossible, right?
This is the now one of my favorite things about living near Houston. This library has all that I described and much, much more. It is a wonderful gift to the pastors and writers in the Houston area. A local Houston lawyer graciously built this library and has opened it up to anyone who wants to use it for study. I heard Alistair McGrath give a lecture there just last month and am looking forward to the future guests they have already scheduled to come in. If you are in the Houston area, or even around just for a visit, it is something you have to schedule time for. It was just finished a couple of months ago and they are still organizing and adding books to the shelves every day.
