The best book store in all of Belfast!

There’s a book store in Belfast called ‘The Bookstore.’ In short (aside from the unoriginal name) it is the best thing (possibly and very probably) ever (in Belfast)!

It’s impossible to put into words just how many books there are in the place. Check out the photos (and then go there)!!

Now, I especially love it because it has the most insane treasure trove of theo(logy)-nerd books – there’s a lot of standard Christian junk books but even still, there are absurd amounts of good good reads. (There are loads of novels – classics, sci-fi, fantasy etc. – poetry, philosophy, science and so on. It’s absolutely not limited to the theology section I dig.)

Here are a few numbers I’ve picked up in the past few months.

The Word and the World by Emil Brunner

Faith and Reality by Wolfhart Pannenberg

Hope and Planning by Jürgen Moltmann

The Future of Creation by Jürgen Moltmann

The Christian Doctrine of God: Dogmatics Vol. 1 by Emil Brunner

The Christian Doctrine of the Church, Faith and the Consummation: Dogmatics Vol. 3 by Emil Brunner

Theology of the World by Johannes Baptist Metz

The Nature and Destiny of Man Pt. 1: Human Nature by Reinhold Niebuhr

The Nature and Destiny of Man Pt. 2: Human Destiny by Reinhold Niebuhr

The Shaking of the Foundations by Paul Tillich

Not the Way it’s Supposed to Be: A Breviary of Sin by Cornelius Plantinga Jr.

Theology in Reconciliation by T.F. Torrance

Basic Questions in Theology by Wolfhart Pannenberg

The Phenomenon of Man by Teilhard de Chardin

The Future of Man by Teilhard de Chardin

The Courage to Be by Paul Tillich

I think I’ve spent, maybe, £56 in there on 16 books and when comparing that to the Amazon prices I’ve saved a fair bit. In short the place is amazing. Get going (though only if you like books, I suppose)!
