Comments Policy

erasmus(same as before)

I think it may be helpful to suggest a few simple policies for posting comments.

If everyone will follow this simple rule, the other two will take care of themselves. You don't have to share my point of view. Debate can be fun. But politeness is a characteristic of civilized behavior. TRUE tolerance is the ability to disagree without going to war, but we should be polite and respectable of one another at all times.

Name-calling and impolite labeling are unnecessary. Further, besides being discourteous, name-calling displays one's inability to adequately articulate a point of view.

A wide variety of people read this blog--people of all ages. My MOM reads this blog! Please keep your comments rated G to PG.

Disagreement is both tolerated and welcomed. But don't come here JUST to disagree with everything said. That becomes not only annoying, but boring. A troll is defined on the Wikipedia as "a person who enters an established community such as an online discussion forum and intentionally tries to cause disruption, often in the form of posting messages that are inflammatory, insulting, incorrect, inaccurate, absurd, or off-topic, with the intent of provoking a reaction from others."

WordPress is set to alert me to any new comments, so I read them all. I value your opinions. Please respect these guidelines. Violators will be tolerated up to a time (with the exception of #3), but then will be banned without warning if unacceptable behavior persists.

regarding bible study / personal notes & writing in my bible

Ever since I was introduced to Jer.15:16 & Matt 4:4 I have enjoyed returning again and again to God's word as my daily bread. It really does sustain me and accompany me through life. As I read it I found myself thinking about it's own message and was soon convinced that if I ate the word, i.e. fully accepted it as the word of God and not of man 1 Thess. 2:13 and remained in it 1 Jn2:24 that it would work in me also. His word would keep me in his love,Jn 15:10 God would accomplish through his word spoken by the prophets and later by his Son and the apostles he chose and sent out that which he sent it out to do. Christ is building his church. It is to be built up in love. So the more we are in his word the more he can wash us Eph. 5:26-27 I agree with you, bible study needs to be a part of every day,it is more like a picnic with Jesus

Not sure if this is OT or even OC but I would like to contact you to draw as I came across your site and thought you might be interested in looking and possibly blogging on the iPhone app that we have done with the UK publisher BRF. It is a version of the their Daily Bible Reading publication New Daylight and is easy to search for in the iTunes store.

Refering to your recent post - this is a bible resource that wouldn't work so easily on Kindle as it stands...

I appreciate you may be an extremely busy person - so I'll keep it short.
I live in the UK - I would like to purchase & read the updated HCSB (have never read it before - not really popular here), but don't want to be overwhelmed by copious notes & perhaps bias of the Study Bible.
Is there - will there be a HCSB 2010 version which is for those who just want to read the book?
Thanks in advance.

I'm certain there will be, but I'm not up on the current publishing schedule. You might try contacting Broadman & Holman directly. Or get the text in a program like Accordance, or look for it online. You know you have the updated text if flood is used instead of deluge in the Noah stories in Genesis.

Thank you for your quick reply.
Will contact B & H.
Found your comments re: Translations helpful.

I have searched the internet and found the Notemakers bible that you have spoken so highly of. I have been looking for a good wide margin bible, I prefer the double column formatt and need some larger print. However and I do realize this bible is out of print, but with the one's I have found,, andd even ebay, none show the INSIDE layout, formatt.... I would like to see the " inside and how's it laid out before purchasing. I was wondering if you could possibly post pictures of the inside of that bible. Like your wife I am partial to the NLT. This would be a great help to me, before I spend the money to purchaes and then take a chance on not liking the formatt of the bible.
Thank you

Sandy, I can see your email address (no one else can). I'll try to email you a couple of photos later today.

Hey there, great blog... I was hoping you would give me the opportunity to share a brand new website that lets people log in with Facebook and share what God has done in their life. Thanks for everything you do for the Kingdom!

I came across your blog titled "Amazon Kindle Touch 3G: Hands-On Review" from WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 201.
I am working on a Masters of Education project concerning the Kindle and have 2 questions.

1. Can I use your screenshots, with credit to you of course.
2. The shots where you have a hand pointing to parts of the screen, did you create them? Or do you have a software that creates them?

Thanks in advance

Hi Grant--

Yes, feel free to use the images. Thanks for asking permission. The shots with the fingers pointing to the screen were on the Kindle when I first turned it on. They came from Amazon.
