2008 has been another, very eventful year for us. First, we have had a great run of book reviews this year and I want to say “Thank you!” to each of our reviewers and to all of you who have read these reviews and have commented on their usefulness. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with this aspect of the ministry here at SI, especially all of the behind the scenes conversations with publishers, reviewers and readers. This, truly, has been a source of tremendous spiritual growth for me.
Second, our family is in the midst of a significant transition. The more I read, write, and interact with others the more I recognize my inadequacies. I tend to be very self-conscious, and posting my opinions on books and theological topics is, at times, a frightening thing. The Lord has surrounded me with a few good friends who have allowed me to bounce some tough questions off of them. This has been helpful.
In 2007, I began to pursue options for continuing my education. After speaking with friends and respected leaders, I came to realize that a change was in order. In the Spring of 2008, we determined that this change would involve a move. We also came to the conclusion that it would be best for us to move closer to family. So, in May, we listed our house for sale and waited to see what the Lord would do. Of course the housing market has been very slow and we didn’t know how long it would take to sell our house.
