Summer Daze

For you friends who wonder if I will continue my weekly Bible studies over the summer—which obviously has begun weeks ago!—the answer is...

Did you hear an answer? I didn't. I guess the author is out on a summer walk or other irresponsible use of his time.

Seriously, I don't know how my time will go this summer. I like writing Bible studies, but right now I am tied up with lots of other chores.

There are two possibilities:

  • I could re-post some of my older studies from about three years ago. Some of you may not have followed them during the year that I composed them.
  • Or—I could compose irregularly, as time is available. If I do this, it will have to be a spinoff of work I am doing on a new commentary on First and Second Samuel

I think you might like the latter. A few years ago my wife Wini and I taught a unit on the life of David for our church's choir Bible study. It was fun. Now that I am doing an in-depth study of First and Second Samuel I am seeing aspects that were not apparent to me then.

So maybe ....

(It will help if you pray that God will make me super-efficient over the summer, and keep me focused on serving Him above all other competing loyalties.)

Keep checking back to this site, and see what turns out. In any event, even if I compose nothing new during the summer, we will have a new unit planned to begin in the Fall for 2010-11.
