Tolle Lege (Take Up and Read)

Four new, excellent RHB titles that I had the privilege of proofreading arrived while we were in Brazil! They include “Comfort and Holiness from Christ’s Priestly Work,” a Puritan Treasure for Today title by William Bridge; “Sweeter by the Dozen: Making Jesus the Lord of Our Family Size,” by Judge Randall Hekman—a much-needed book in our selfish day; “Laughing at the Days to Come: Facing Present Trials and Future Uncertainties with Gospel Hope” by Tessa Thompson—one of the best-written titles we have ever published by RHB—much help here for the suffering; “God, Creation, and Human Rebellion: Lecture Notes of Archibald Alexander from the Hand of Charles Hodge”—an outstanding series of lectures by my personal hero, Archibald Alexander, printed for the first time—edited by Travis Fentiman and introduced by James Garretson. Tolle Lege (take up and read)—and enjoy and reap profit for your soul!

Ministry Wives Fellowship

Mary and I arrived safely home from Brazil—a 30-hour overnight trip. I got right to lecturing and my Queen hosted the Ministry Wives Fellowship in our home this evening. What a trooper she is! This is a great ministry for seminary students’ wives, providing helpful instruction over the years on being a pastor’s wife. BTW, my wife tells me that 1/3 of these women are expecting children, so our seminary family population is also rising, by God’s Grace, through internal growth! Please pray for the wives of our seminary students who do and will serve such an important place in Christ’s worldwide kingdom.
