Happy Christmas to all of you. 2014 has been a busy year, leaving little time to prepare posts here. I hope 2015 may leave more time. I’m farewelling 2014 now as tomorrow I head for Auckland and then on to the UK (for mum’s funeral) and so will almost certainly not post here again this […]

Rubén Gómez, of Bible Software Review, is organising tours to Israel. Spanish-speakers take note :)

Jim West first got all excited that there is a West St somewhere, now it’s a Zias Rd, that’s nothing, I have a whole village named after me! As well as Bulkeley Terrace in New Plymouth.   PS, knowing how Jim loves to use Wikipedia here’s the relevant article.

We held the physical book launch for Not Only a Father in Auckland on Friday. I hope the others who attended found the conversation interesting, I especially appreciated both Sarah Harris’ comments and some of the questions that gave me food for thought, and the great way Andrew and others pulled a launch together.
