(I'm sure I missed a few, if so feel free to link more below). The list is currently around 105 authors, in chronological order. You can also view them in alphabetical order by author. There is a link to half a dozen or so reformed Baptist systematic theologies as well."

Just curious as to how and why you came from understanding the scriptures as you once did, to now a more reformed view?

The Reformed Books Online site is a very good one. I much appreciate that it provides links to all the important Reformed writers of yesteryear. The Reformed heritage is rich beyond compare, In my humble opinion, and no one should think that if it's old it is irrelevant or outdated. Indeed, I find often that if something is new, it lacks the theological and practical depth of the older writers. The older guys can be a tough read at times, but they are worth the effort. 

Links to the Reformers, the Puritans, for instance, and even to some great Dutch writers is what makes this site stand out.

A great feature of this site is that it often gives short reviews of volumes linked. On many of the commentaries a snippet from Spurgeon appears. Spurgeon, I find, is always priceless. I guess I'm a bit of a "fanboy" of his, but whether he was preaching, writing his own commentaries, or reviewing the material of others, he delivered in spades. Pick up Spurgeon on the Psalms (The Treasury of David) and you really won't need another commentary on that book. Yet Spurgeon tells of many other solid writers on the poetical books beside his own. 
Spurgeon was always straightforward and honest in his appraisals. If there was something he perceived to be amiss by an author, he never shied away from pointing this out. He was also very gracious, however, and clearly looked for the good in a commentator. If it was there, Spurgeon would mention it.

Otherwise the person who put together the Reformed Books Online site makes his own observations, and these are quite helpful, also. If you read them he can let you know in advance about weaknesses or novelties in a given author or volume. Very nice, since you are not jolted by surprise or disappointment later.

By and large the books linked are solid. You could read nothing but what is offered on this site and develop a profound grasp, by God's grace, of all the great doctrines of the faith.
Beware of phony Calvinists, Pharisees that thumb the nose, willfully blind to their own profound wretchedness.

Too often today people don't view 'growing in understanding' as something that takes hard work - reading a puritan is not always an enjoyable exercise, often it is a labour (I recall a page and half in Fairburn without a full stop/ period). However hardwork pays off and the more effort we put in the more we grow - work at the puritans, and if you have to read a page 5 times to get it, read it five times :D  
"George Whitefield said, "We are all born Arminians." It is grace that turns us into Calvinists." Spurgeon

Greatly appreciate these esteemed resources! I only pray that I have enough time to study these books and share them with others.
