Theoretical-Practical Theology Volume 1

Petrus van Mastricht

Finished on
theology

Absolutely phenomenal. I love how he takes a topic and moves through the four aspects: exegesis, doctrine, elenctics, and practice. Prolegomena is usually dry but this was exhilarating. It's also very easy to read. No lofty language. Every statement is punctuated by Scripture references. I'm really eager to start the next volume.

The Bitcoin Standard

Saifedean Ammous

Finished on
finance

This was a good read. Most of the book outlines the history of money, from seashells to modern day government money. While written by an academic, the tone was popular, and sometimes mocking and highly critical which left a slightly bad taste in my mouth. Present your arguments and let them speak for themselves.

I think it's a successful, and reasonable critique of the idea that inflation is a good tool; however, I'm not convinced that Bitcoin is the solution. The author admits himself that a new layer would have to be created on top of Bitcoin to serve as an exchange of value while Bitcoin can only really serve as a store of value.
