Nice Product Placement




I have figured that if I can't teach professionally, then I'd like to give advice professionally. And if I can't give advice, then I'd like to recommend things. In order to practice, I'm going to recommend something that I have enjoyed that I think others would enjoy as well. Today I recommend the IVP Reference Collection. This is a collection of the fantastic dictionaries and commentaries that IVP has put out over the years (Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, Dictionary of Paul and His Letters, New Dictionary of Biblical Theology [my favorite] etc.), all available on a single CD-ROM. While I have only had this collection for a few days now, I have already lost a few hours of sleep by scanning the contents of these wonderful reference works. A personal bonus for me was that I could read Dr. Jonathan Lunde's article on Heaven and Hell in Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels! Okay, I'm going to stop blabbing so that you can go out and order your own copy today. 17 amazing reference works for $120!!

It's okay. Remember that you were the first person to cite his "3 Views on NT/OT" book. You are still Lundefan #1.

Carrie Marie said...

thank you Kevin, thank you. This IS indeed a factual statement you have just made. And I do have the proof from his own handwriting. So, yah, I guess you are right; I am Lunde's biggest fan. ;)

Hahah, I won't let an honor like that go unnoticed.
