Blog Update and Life Update

Well, blogging surely has been slow around here.

It may remain that way. I’d rather say something of substance on occasion instead of vacuous posts going up regularly.

That  said, life has also gotten in the way. Yes, there is life outside of blogging. I’ve been through an extremely rough patch for the last four years. The last four months were especially rough, because, while I thought things were going to get better, I hit a very rough patch. I faced treachery, deceit, lies, defamation of character, and finally was blessed to get relief a few weeks ago. Now I’m sick with a spring cold. Of course I’d take the cold above the other any old day 8-)

I have some ideas that I hope to blog about in the future. I’ll list some of them, though I’ll probably not get around to them all.

1. Orthodoxy in the Apostolic Fathers. Was there a single orthodoxy, or multiple orthodoxies?

2. Genesis and the ANE myths.

3. A historical survey of the interpretation of the Genesis Creation Account from the Scriptures, Second Temple Judaism, and The Early Church Fathers (probably ending with the Apostolic Fathers).

4. The meaning of man being a living soul, and the implications of this in counseling.

OK. Now my work is cut out for me, because I’ll have to post on at least one or two of these things. I’m committed.

Oh, by the way, Joel is working on a new book; but I don’t think he’ll be asking me to contribute. I do look forward to reading it when it comes out.
