Proof of what is unseen

Blog Drought

Interesting. Over the course of four years, this blog has rarely dried up for very long. Why did it do so in the last week?

Apparently, I have finite writing energies, and those energies are finally being put to use. Even my dissertation failed to spend them all! But now I’m writing a new textbook for the BJU Press Bible Truths series. It’s called “The Story of the Old Testament,” and it means putting a lot of my rhetoric over the last several years to the test. Can junior-highers understand the story of Scripture? Are some books like Kings just too hard to fit into that story?

It’s exhausting to process a lot of information and spit it out in a form appropriate for eighth-graders, but it’s rewarding, too. I hope that many of them will catch on to the Bible’s storyline about thirteen years earlier in their lives’ timelines than I did.

I appreciate the prayers of those who think to pray.
