DSC00850Here Carol and I are unpacking the books. Carol did a lot of work on the book as well as keeping me supplied with coffee. We had great fun working together. All of the contributors are wonderful Christian leaders and thinkers who devoted much time and effort. The publisher, Smyth&Helwys, has been easy to work with. I received encouragement from a great many people for which I am grateful One of those is Joan Brown Campbell, head of the religion department at the Chautauqua Institution. I, of course, am responsible for what is in the book. I believe deeply in the cause and pray that the book will be of help in the struggle against rhetoric that is not reflective of our Christian faith.
