We got home a couple of days ago from a 10-day trip that included missions/servant evangelism in south Louisiana for a week, visits to both set of parents (complete with birthday parties), and a few days at our home church. Though everyone but me and Andrew was beset with a stomach bug at some point, we had a great trip.
While we were visiting our home church in Forest Hill, I was able to pick up a box of mail that had not been forwarded (we shared a mailing address with the church, so the P.O. would not forward our mail). Amidst all the letters and catalogs were several review books I had long requested but had never received at my current address. They were
God Incarnate: Explorations in Christology by Oliver D. Crisp
The End of Sacrifice: Religious Transformation in Late Antiquity by Guy G. Stroumsa
The Living Paul: An Introduction to the Apostle’s Life and Thought by Anthony C. Thiselton
I also received a duplicate copy of The Lure of the Dark Side: Satan and Western Demonology in Popular Culture by Christopher Partridge and Eric Christianson. This was the original copy sent to me, but with the mail mix-ups, I just now received it. So, I may do a giveaway in the next couple of weeks!
I also received from my father-in-law a copy of Isaiah 40-66 by Gary V. Smith in the New American Commentary series, also the result of duplicate mailings.
Lots of good reading to do!
