Where have I been?: a brief update

Things have been rather quiet around Fire & Rose as of late. There are many reasons for this, but here are the most important:

1. I’ve been taking care of this guy.

2. I have been studying French for a reading exam that I have to take in September.

3. I have been working on many book reviews—six or seven, I think. Despite my best efforts, I have resigned myself to the fact that I won’t get them all done before classes start in the fall. Some of the books I am reviewing include Paul D. Jones’s The Humanity of Christ, Michael Gorman’s Inhabiting the Cruciform God, and Daniel Treier’s Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture.

4. I am also working on a semi-top-secret project of my own, which has now reached 130,000 words. The book-length essay examines the God-world relationship in all its facets.

5. I hope to switch, yes, to a new site, with my own URL. This will happen at an undetermined time, so don’t worry about changing links quite yet.

6. Did I mention I am watching my son, Aidyn, full time while my wife works? Everything changes in that scenario, and blogging was just the first thing to go. Sorry.
