The Markan-Buddhist Commentary is on hold

Hello, readers,

There has been a great deal of tumult in your humble narrator’s life as of late. From the death of Judas car to the on-going saga of my grandmother’s resistance to assistance in her dotage, I have found precious little time between work, seminary, church, and my personal life to dedicate to the Biblical commentary I so wish to write. I am placing it on hold as I focus on more pressing responsibilities. I hope to return to it this summer; indeed, I hope to return to my own writing at some point, as I have several books “in the works,” but none close enough to completion to get to a publisher. It has been six years since my last book, and a new one needs to come to the surface.

Until that time, I will attempt to post as I am able on matters that capture my fancy. With so much going on vis-a-vis the presidential election as it pertains to religion and theology, I imagine I will be weighing in more often than not. My apologies to those who were participating in the commentary project; part of my 2012 resolution is to realize when I have bitten off more than I can chew. I find myself in that place once again. Being a full time student as well as a full time professor is quite a challenge, and I am hoping to take on some new projects at church. However, as my church bible study group makes its way through Mark, I might blog periodically about issues that emerge in our discussion. We’ll see how it goes.

May God’s blessings be upon you all. Until next time: be well, do good works, and love one another. I’ll try to do the same.
