Our Common Prayerbook 19 – 2

posted by Scot McKnight

Psalm 19 is cut into two themes, and the two themes are not connected at the verbal level by the author as if to say how they relate. The first part has the Creation speaking, and the second part has […]

iPad and Other E-Readers

posted by Scot McKnight

I’m in search of some help. Kindle and Nook and other e-readers now have to compete with the iPad. While the percentage of books read in e-form is still quite low, somewhere about 5%, that number will probably increase.  What […]
