The Spirit Summarized

August 6, 2019

This past Saturday, my newest book arrived from the printer. Actually, it was written in 1994, but the most recent edition has a more handsome cover than past editions, and it has been revised slightly and proofed again. The Spirit Summarized encapsulates the fundamentals about the Holy Spirit. Differing understandings by various writing brethren about key facets of the Holy Spirit were consulted, and several quotations regarding studies by those scholars appear in the book. While the 90-page treatise is intended to be informational rather than confrontational, I do make recommendations for consideration and belief regarding the Holy Spirit. Chapters include:  Introductory Matters, The Holy Spirit: A Divine Person, The Word: The Holy Spirit’s Medium of Operation, The Work of the Holy Spirit, The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, The Case of Cornelius and His Household, The Indwelling of the Holy Spirit, Acts 2:38 and the Gift of the Holy Spirit, Gifts of the Holy Spirit, Blaspheming and Sinning Against the Holy Spirit, Sealed in the Holy Spirit, The Intercession of the Holy Spirit, The Holy Spirit: True and False, Questions. An extensive Works Cited and Works Consulted conclude The Spirit Summarized. Copies may be ordered online at Gospel Gazette Online and World Evangelism Publications or by calling World Evangelism in Winona, Mississippi at 662.283.1192. Retail is $8.00 each, but quantity discounts are available for classroom use. One can also view a PDF version of Spirit Summarized online at Gospel Gazette Online Digital Library.

My Three Aren’t Wee Anymore

August 3, 2019

A few days ago, I surrendered over 150 old slides to Walmart (it farmed it out to one of its contractors, apparently). I wanted to explore converting numerous trays of slides into digital photographs to preserve them as well as to use some of them perhaps in upcoming publications. They’re not all family pictures, but there are scenery pics and teaching material (e.g., archaeological slides). The first batch recovered an old photo of Bonnie and my three children on the brink of Niagara Falls on the US side. How things have changed. I suspect Rebecca will be the least amused, but that will amuse me.
