I suppose this might be news to some readers, but it won't be to others. When I stop to consider what some of my favorite passages from the Bible are, specifically in the New Testament, one passage often springs to mind: the story of "the woman caught in adultery," from... Continue reading

I've just been digging through a bunch of old posts here on this Qoheleth blog, which is kind of the "red-headed stepchild" of all my blogs. I rarely even remember that this blog exists, but every once in awhile, I stumble on it again. Anyway, looking at a lot of... Continue reading

As a replacement, here is a video (with somewhat subpar audio quality) of another "Much Ado" production, featuring David Tennant and Catherine Tate as Benedick and Beatrice:

Now that I've tidied up around the Qoheleth blog a bit, I thought I would list my various blogs, and what they're all about. I still have never quite managed to streamline my blogging as much as I probably should, but for right now, this is what I've got... Continue reading

I often forget about this blog. Looking back through the Archives, it looks like I set it up sometime around the same time as I was using Posterous for most of my blogging. (Boy, do I miss that platform!) I don't exactly remember why I didn't stick with Typepad. For... Continue reading

I had completely forgotten I started this blog...I merely stumbled upon it by Googling myself (or is it "googling," with a lower case g?). At the time, I seem to recall thinking that Qoheleth was a pretty bitchin' name for a blog. After all, "Qoheleth" is the name of the... Continue reading

I'm trying to reestablish my presence on the "blogosphere" (whatever that is). A little while back, I used to blog quite regularly, but several months ago, I kinda ran out of steam. Anyhoo... I really have to organize my Bible collection. I won't post a picture of our office/library, but... Continue reading

I see that my last blog post was September 17, 2012, over FOUR MONTHS AGO. I've been a bad, bad blogger. For a little while, a long time ago, I was really rolling. What went wrong? Anyway, I don't know if anyone is still reading this blog, but I am... Continue reading

I was looking at some of my past posts on this blog (which have been few and far between these days), and I can't help but marvel at how quickly the time has gone since Su was just a little older than Lucy is now. She seemed like such a... Continue reading

It turns out, having two children is not simply twice the work; it's more like 4 or 5 times the work! With Su in school, and Lucy on the verge of walking, it seems like things are always moving. Su just lost her first tooth, and Lucy just got her... Continue reading

Once again, I'm checking in on the Bible Bestsellers list compiled by the Christian Booksellers' Association. I notice with interest that the CEB is gaining more ground these days, unseating the HCSB from the #6 spot it used to occupy. (I haven't checked in on the list for several months,... Continue reading

[I received a free copy of this book from the Tyndale Blog Network, in exchange for posting this review on my blog and on See for more information.] First, the good news: Hitchcock is considerably more organized in the layout of his End Times book than, say, Hal... Continue reading

I've run out of shelf space, that's all there is to it. You should see the piles of books all over the office, all over the house! So I decided it was time to get rid of a few Bibles (duplicates, versions I don't use, etc.). So this is my... Continue reading

(This is take #2 on this post, as our power went out when I was right in the middle of typing it! Grrr.) I've been meaning to do this review for quite some time now, but I wanted to "get comfortable" with The Voice Bible for a little while before... Continue reading

I haven't really been very active with my blogging for the past few months. Thing is, I'm just too busy at the moment: having two kids is way more time consuming than having one. There's a lot to do, and I simply don't have time. Eventually, I hope to return... Continue reading

No, this post is not about what you may be thinking. The word I had in mind was...CHURCH. This word, which has been in the English language for a very long time, has also had times of unpopularity among people who consider themselves followers of Christ. I've been involved lately...
