Things have been a bit quite around here for a while and I apologize for that. It is largely due to the fact that a book deadline looms in the not-to-distant future and I have been devoting any spare moments to making certain that I meet that deadline.

I am completing a commentary on Colossians and Philemon which Kress Biblical Resources has agreed to publish. The hope is for a release date in March 2012.

Would you join me in praying for the final preparations of the text? And would you pray that God will use this commentary to guide many people into the life-changing Word of God?

Why do I do this? Quite simply it is because “The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple” (Psalm 119:130). I know that it is through the unfolding of God’s Word that God gives me light and understanding and I wish to be used to that end in the lives of others.
