And my birthday. But it’s still a perfectly good excuse to get books. My wife perused my Amazon wish list and wisely chose two books that I had been wanting. She’s had them for over a month now, but I only today could open the box, to find The Lost World Of Genesis One by John H. Walton. and A Greek English Lexicon of the New Testament and other Early Christian Literature (3rd edition) (BDAG).
I immediately started reading The Lost World of Genesis One on the way for some yummy Indian food. I’ve already got a head start on Walton’s views from the ZIBBCOT volume on Genesis, which he had a hand in. Getting back from dinner, my wife and I proceeded to have a 2 hour discussion on creation, Adam, Noah, chronology, etc. Little more far flung than Genesis 1, but similar theme. Should make for interesting reading and discussion!
