Who Thinks this Strange Way?

by Dave June 28, 2010

I was asked, by my Father, if I am coming up with this stuff on my own.  I want to assure him that I am not alone in trying to recover this lost meaning from the scriptures.  Actually, I am very much an amateur in this pursuit and am writing this blog as an outlet [...]
