This really is more of a chance to let book lover's know about a great systematic theology on kindle. Kindle has Wilhelmus A'Brakel's "The Christian's Reasonable Service" for $60. A'Brakel was a theologian during the Dutch Further Reformation which was from roughly 1600-1750. He lived from 1635-1711 and is still known as "Father Brakel".

This systematic theology is truly mammoth, over 3000 pages (51142 Kindle page turns!).
here is the table of contents, as I said, I haven't had a chance to read much of it yet, but thought I'd give others the chance to know it's out there:
