Sad News: Giovanni Garbini has Died

garbiniI’m gutted.  Seldom has the world produced a better scholar or more genuinely wonderful friend.

R.I.P., good sir.

Yeah That Pretty Much Sums it Up

The leather-bound Bible owned by local man Kurt Ryder for over ten years reported Sunday that it was “super pumped” to participate in Ryder’s resolution to read his Bible every day, until he inevitably shelves it in the latter half of the first week of January, sources confirmed.

“It’s such an honor to open my sacred pages to Ryder, so he can get through around a quarter of Genesis before abandoning his attempt to read through me,” the Bible said in a statement. “Our time together is precious—I wait almost twelve months for this week every year.”

“Any second now. It’s devo time!” it added.

The printing of the Scriptures also stated it was hopeful that Ryder would make it all the way to Exodus this year.

“I have a feeling this year’s going to be special. I don’t want to jinx it, but we could even sniff Leviticus,” the Scriptures said excitedly, though it admitted that Ryder’s making it through the third book of the Pentateuch would be a “pipe dream.”

Don’t let your Bible be sad.

The Last Evening as Tourist

SOTS commences tomorrow and with the full schedule it offers there won’t be any time for touristy stuff.  So I went around the city Center again, had a nice dinner, picked up some Thornton’s for the kiddo, and now I’m holed up in the room watching BBC1.

The real fun starts tomorrow.  More anon.

When Christians Identify With a Political Party…

They do themselves irreparable damage.

When ‘evangelicals’ aligned themselves with the GOP it was a terrible mistake.

And I Bet He Has A Black Friend Too…

Because when you try that hard to tell people how much you like someone, or some group, it’s because you probably don’t.

Some Photos of the Nottingham City Center

Around and About

Today is a day devoted to visiting various sights around Nottingham.  Photos will appear at various stages or, in all likelihood, when I return to the room for the evening.  In the meanwhile, if you want something to do, get yourself a copy of the Commentary.  Or, if you prefer, copies of my little Zwingli collection.

As to the commentary, you can buy the PDF’s from yours truly for a paltry $199 by clicking my PayPal Link.  It’s that simple.  The Commentary is comprised of 42 individual volumes and all together are available in electronic format for $199. But not everyone is interested in every book of the Bible so after having received a number of requests for individual volumes in the series I’ve decided to offer any single volume for $5.

As to Zwingli,   I’m offering the PDFs of the intro to Zwingli AND the Devotional for $15.  Get them both and learn about Zwingli and become more spiritual at the same time!  Follow the Paypal link and the PDFs will be sent straightaway. And if you do, you’ll also have the opportunity to get the Commentary for $100 (that’s half off).  So for $115 you get two books about Zwingli and a Commentary on the Bible.  Match that anywhere!  Here’s the Paypal link for the Zwingli books + the Commentary.
