I know, I know, I have not been posting as often, or as deeply, as I used to. Let me offer three excuses and a fine old story. Excuse the first: I am retired and no longer think about teaching the Bible all the time (it is now a hobby, and looking after steers, sheep, […]

Jim West needs more Logos users to “preorder” his commentary series it is a remarkable effort by one pastor/teacher to write clear straightforward comment on every book of the Bible (so far there are 36 volumes “covering 59 books of the Bible and 4 books of apocrypha”). I believe that the commentaries do not share […]

I do not like boundaries. (Well except the ones I erect to keep the animals in ;) It is fun to cross borders, things are different on the other side. Travel broadens the mind. So, for my latest Librivox reading I’ve tried two of La Lontaine’s Fables both from book 9. Both were fun, and […]

One of my hobbies is reading for Librivox. I’ve just finished what (I think) is the first/only complete audio book of Kipling’s Just So Stories to contain not only the stories, poems, and picture descriptions, but also the 13th story (see below). I have also written a blurb for the book. Can any one suggest […]
