    Being a convinced creationist, I enjoy observing the beautiful plants and animals God so wondrously created. iNaturalist provides the opportunity for cataloging those observations and sharing them with other amateur and professional naturalists. “But ask the beasts, and they will teach you; the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you; or speak to the earth and it will teach you . . .” (Job 12:7-8). To allow you to enjoy some of what I have observed and continue to encounter, this link will share my observations recorded on the iNaturalist app.

Book Sellers

  • Eisenbrauns (Books) While in my ThD program at Grace Theological Seminary, I worked at Eisenbrauns. I started shipping books then moved into phototypesetting. Projects in which I participated: CHD, BA, and books by O’Connor, Freedman, and Lapp.

Christian Hymnology

  • Psalms and Hymns of Isaac Watts No one should ever preach in the Psalms without reading and singing the poetic renditions of Isaac Watts. Singing psalms is an exercise that will bless the soul and elevate the mind. That is one of the practices I follow in teaching through the Psalter.

Hebrew

  • “Avinu Malkeinu” by Barbra Streisand One of the most beautiful and beautifully sung of Hebrew songs. A prayer sung by Jewish congregations at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, as well as on each of the Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
  • Daily Dose of Hebrew Superb daily 2-minute videos walking word by word through a Hebrew Bible verse for understanding its grammar. Typical modern, rather than classical, pronunciation. Futato’s and Blanchard’s interpretations are sometimes suspect.
  • Hebrew Alphabet Song Closest available online Hebrew alphabet song to the original that used to be online and which I used in my Hebrew classes for my students.
  • Hebrew Audio Bible The pronunciation is not the pure classical Hebrew most closely associated with Yemeni Hebrew pronunciation, but the popular and dominant Germanic pronunciation of Medieval to Modern Hebrew. This shows up especially in pronouncing WAW as VAV.

Heroes in OT Studies

  • Robert Dick Wilson With apologies to my personal mentors in OT studies whom I admire so much and to whom I owe more than I could ever repay (Leo Lapp, Bernard Northrup, and John Whitcomb), I would trade the lion’s share of my years with them for one semester under Wilson.

  • Mars Rovers (NASA/JPL) What would it be like to go to Mars? The red planet has always intrigued me. Some years ago I even wrote a short story presenting real arguments for creationism vs. evolution featuring a debate between two protagonists in a space station on Mars.
