I am officially back from vacationing in Corpus Christi with my wife, Brooke. She’s from there, so we went to spend time with her family. It was fun. I also managed to visit a nice Half-Price Books there and picked up a few titles. Here’s what I got:
Theology of the New Testament by Rudolf Bultmann,
Studying the Historical Jesus by Darrell Bock, and
The New Testament: A Historical Introduction to the Early Christian Writings by Bart Ehrman.
I’m pleased with these titles (especially since I got all three for less than $20). I’ve been told time and time again that I have to read Bultmann, so I grabbed that the second I saw it. Also, I was a little sad that I didn’t win Matthew Burgess’ book giveaway last month, so I grabbed Ehrman’s title as well.
Still, my favorite parts of this short vacation were the fun times I had with my wife. She is one incredible woman, and I am a very, very lucky man.
