  1. I just had to write and thank you for your work before I did another thing today. Besides the Holy Bible, which I have endeavored to devour for some 35 years now, my favorite book of all time is your book, Paul: a Novel. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading Paul not just once, but each of the three times I have read it. I love that your writing provokes my mind (and my heart!) into new and memorable places. I am currently reading your massive work, The Book of God, which is what drove me (finally!) to see if you have a presence online. I am so glad I found you, your blog, and your long list of books!
