And the Winner Is!

The grand prize winner of my recent drawing, selected by random number generation, is…

Drum roll, if you please!

C. Howard of G., South Carolina!

No, that’s too obvious. Let’s try “Chris H. of Greenville, SC”!

Chris gets a Bible and a big collection of theological and other articles going back probably seven or more years.

Runners-up, who get just the articles, include John Mark S., Meg J., Josh Y., all of Greenville, SC; and Andrea G. of the great state of Ohio. You’ll get your prizes relatively soon.

I’ll do my best to honor everyone’s requests for blog topics—except the suggestion of one “B. the Conqueror” who wrote, “Give me tips on how to get dates with cute babes.” I suspected B. was a Russian spammer until I found out that he has the same level of education as D.A. Carson! Wow! But no such tips here, B. Already got the last cute babe. Sorry.

Other suggestions were a little more practicable: more usage-determines-meaning “ranting” (!), “variety is good,” “short is good,” “more of your cultural/musical thoughts & recommendations,” “articles that deal with technology,” and “keep doing what you are doing.”

Ok!

I’m really thankful that someone in Greenville won this Bible, because my cute babe and I just rejiggered our budget, and mailing prizes to blog readers failed to get any funding this year.

I want to talk through a super common issue on the internet. I invite your wisdom and input; I also invite your prayer. Because I want and need—desperately need—divine wisdom for whether and how to answer all kinds of internet comments from all kinds of strangers with...

A Jot of My Thoughts on My Dissertation, a Decade On

I basically finished my dissertation a decade ago. Paul’s Positive Religious Affections. It’s available on Kindle and print-on-demand just in case anyone wants it. In it I basically argued that Paul is meant to be a model in his affections and not just in his theology...
