I have in my possession an original copy of the 1964 Doubleday edition of the Official Warren Report. Is it worth anything, or should I just chunk it?
I think it was in Glover Shipp’s library, when I bought the rest of what he didn’t sell, before he left Brazil. In 1985. Twenty-one years after it was published. Historical document.
Now it’s 35 years later after I came to possess it, and I still have it. But not for long.
Spent no little time yesterday reworking an old series on spending an hour with God in devotional time. It suggests 12 movements centered mostly around the Word and prayer. One class or chapter had no text (where could it have gone?), so I wrote up probably the best and fullest information of all the chapters. I had saved the series in a new file, reformatted it, made not a few typo and other corrections, and redid the scripture citations (removing parentheses and such). I also standardized book citations and created a bibliography at the back. Now to go back through it and beef up the other chapters.
Maybe I’ll print up a few copies and offer it in digital format. Dunno.
Just finished delivering the back cover of Jon Gary Williams’s book, on how to study the Bible, in Portuguese to the printer. That’s done. This run will be relatively small, for the seminar on how to study and apply the Bible, for Saturday of next week. It still needs some revision, but I wanted to have this to put in people’s hands at the event, since it’s what I’ll be using for part of the day. So we’ll do a second edition down the road a bit.
Eleven more months to go in 2018. How did you do in January? There’s still time to make important and necessary changes. Make the right choices with CHOOSE book. Time’s a’wastin’.
I’m supposed to be downsizing, as I look to close out my present office. But looking on the CBD discount site, I added two study Bibles to my wish list, the NLT and CSB. Hardback, for study and consultation.
Some decisions made so far this year:
- Use a real Bullet Journal. Last year, for lack of option, I used a regular agenda and tried to make it into a BuJo. It worked fair to middling.
- Read Ed Mathews “Plow New Ground” for my daily devotionals.
- Keep using my old TiddlyWiki for digital notes, prayers, ideas, and articles, rather than starting with a new one.
- Started a list of books to read. Am reading the first on the list.
- Preach a series on “What We Know” to start out the year.
- Make 2018 the year of the Holy Spirit.
There’ll be more decisions to come soon.
Was asked to recommend books on personal development. I’ve come up with a short list. What would you suggest? Please reply in comments below.
