It has been a long semester. My dream of reading Calvin's Institutes in a year gave way in February, just before the end of Book I. Now that classes are over, I have another 1000-1500 pages of essays to mark, as well as 160 or so final exams. (Thankfully, my faculty assistant is helping me out with the latter.) On the bright side, I am almost finished C.K. Barrett's great ICC commentary on Acts, I have kept my New Year's resolution (even taking a pass on the library book sale), and in just over a week I will be on my way to Israel with the Briercrest Israel Study Tour. The marking--well, it can wait until I return if necessary.
