Thesis: This afternoon I have a supervisor meeting. Hoping it goes well and I get some encouragement. I am now speculating that I could have a draft by the end of July. That would be excellent.
I have finally finished reading Weinandy's "Does God Suffer?", and will put up a few more posts about that in the next week or so. There is a lot of really good theologising in there.
I've also finally (and it's taken far longer!) read through the second volume of Hans Oerberg's Lingua Latina, "Roma Aeterna". Towards the end there were things I wasn't really making sense of. Reading Latin is in some ways harder than reading Greek, I think. Anyway, I will lay it aside and read some Vergil for awhile.
My Patristic reading schedule is currently Augustine's Confessions (manageable), and Ignatius' Letters (excruciating). I'm not particularly fond of Ignatius. His desire for martyrdom is, in my opinion, psychologically warped and not in line with the NT presentation of martyrdom. This morning I was reading his letter to the Romans, ch 5, and he is just out of control!
Lastly, I'm getting close to finishing Bentley-Hart's "Atheist Delusions". It's an excellent read. I'll try and post some thoughts on it once I'm done. It's good enough that I'm thinking of breaking budget to buy a copy for the years to come.
Also, I've stuffed-up my home laptop, which is why the Latin diary entries over at cotidie have dried up. Hope to get back into that practice soon. I did manage to sit in a seminar the other day and take my notes in Latin. Would like to get my Greek up to that point too.
Okay, back to work.
