Books for the New Year

The belated expensive Christmas gift I bought for myself through Amazon has finally arrived. What a way to begin the new academic year at the seminary where I can be assured of some healthy diet and indulgence for the next few days. In fact, I have already begun to devour Philip Harland's recently published Dynamics of Identity in the World of the Early Christians. I must say it is a very highly engaging and thought provoking piece of work. I might do a review later on.

Hint hint to my dear colleague who happens to be the Business Manager of the seminary - I need more shelf space!

Hi sir,
Well, learning is always lifelong. The day we stop learning, that's the day we stop progressing.

Keropok lekor,
No no...As a churchman, should I not be apolitical? After all, I once heard that the church is to be apolitical.
