Another One Bites the Dust

Last Friday night, prior to leaving for NH, I finished Vanhoozer's Drama of Doctrine. Yes, I have silenced the mouths of all ye who slander me...at least until you hit the comments section. Nevertheless, its' been quite a journey. I started back in March and I can honestly say it's been the weightiest book I've read in a loooong time. Forget the prospect of a book review from me; I'm not even going to try. Read it for yourself - it's worth it. I may post some of the most significant lessons learned in coming weeks, but that remains to be seen.

One more thought: I'd like to conduct an informal pole in the comment section. Thought it's presumptious to think there are very many people reading this still, as my blogging has been sporadic at best, google reader gives me hope. Were you more suprised that 1) I got a tattoo or 2) I finished a 400 plus page book by Vanhoozer? I figured I'd post these two dramatic (yes the pun is intended) posts back to back.

I'll vote - because as a recent Google reader user I see your new posts.
I was definitely more surprised to find the book finished. I had no doubts about the tattoo.

Option # 3 -- that you were accepted into Bob Jones' PhD.

I'd have to say VanHoozer was more a surprise. I knew you could handle the needles, the drama seemed tougher for you. :)

I wish you'd stop projecting your academic aspirations onto my life. After all, the only reason you're going to TEDS is because you thought it might increase the likelyhood of getting into bj.

Why not just a tatoo that says "I finished VanHoozer"?
