Summer has come, and I'm now on my annual vacation/sabbatical.
Rev. Andrew Compton (above) will be preaching through the Joseph story in Genesis 37-50 this summer. Andrew is a first-rate OT scholar, and we will be privileged to sit under his preaching while I'm on break.
As for me, after a week off or so, I'll take up several writing projects. I'm doing a review of Sam Storm's new book, Kingdom Come: The Amillennial Alternative for Modern Reformation.
I'm updating my Riddlebarger family history in light of my DNA test--now that the reality has set in that I'm no longer German, and am related to Ben Roethlisberger (he's a distant cousin), as we both are descendants from the Rotlisperger family of the Canton of Bern.
I hope to make good progress on my two kingdoms book--its been on the shelf because of deadlines for my revised A Case for Amillennialism (which should be out in July) and my recent commentary on 1 Corinthians.
Lord willing, I'll get to spend some time in the Eastern Sierras with church friends and family--always the highlight of my year. One of the first books I'm going to tackle is Allen Guelzo's new book on Gettysburg.
A year ago at this time, I was still recovering from major surgery (colon cancer), and as I enter into summer a year later everything looks good and I feel fine--back to my old sinful self. The Lord has been very kind and gracious to me! Your prayers for healing were answered and I am very thankful for them!
I'll be around, and will post as I can.
