Dinner on the Nile River

This evening (we are 7 hours ahead of EST in the U.S.) we had a delightful dinner in a beautiful restaurant on the Nile River in Cairo, Egypt with some of the leaders connected with the Alexandria School of Theology. In addition to hearing about each others’ families, conversion, and work, we discussed a great variety of subjects, including the doctrine of assurance of faith, the role of affections in Reformed experiential theology, the theology of Thomas Cranmer and Jonathan Edwards. The brother sitting next to me has devoted his life’s work to the theology of Cranmer. Oxford University Press is releasing volume 1 of his edited edition of Cranmer’s Works this year (which includes his 250-page intro on Cranmer), and then, hopefully, volumes 2-5 in the next seven years, D.V. The Lord willing, tomorrow I finish teaching my Reformed Experiential Preaching class here, and then we move on to the last leg of our trip for a conference and for preaching in Alexandria, Egypt. We are really looking forward to our homecoming next week to see our new grandchild, Abraham Frank!
