Jim is at it again!

Jim West is at it again!

Some will still remember this:

And not to forget, this.

This time, my good friend in America has sent me his duplicate copies of Zwingli’s Hauptschriften (Der Theologe I, II and III). Glorious!

I’ve been building more and more in appreciation for Zwingli, especially in light of sections in Jim’s forthcoming translation of Zwinglis Humor by Fritz Schmidt-Clausing. This little book has been opening me up to the delightfulness of this reformer like none other.

And so I am all the more excited to get these volumes! Thanks so much Jim!

Actually, Anja too was enjoying the reading today on the trip back from the Zollamt. We read from his text on the two natures of Christ (in III), and even there some of his gentle humour was pushing through. Out of respect for Jim, and his favourite theologian, have a read of something penned by Zwingli today!

In the next post, I offer you something that I hope will provide you my readers with your own reading enjoyment.

Where did you find the novina that invokes the St. Jim patron saint of library building. All my praying to St. Jerome has never been this fruitful! ;-)

My purpose is really quite wicked and sneaky-- I figure if I send Chris books that are meaningful he will remember me when he's a famous theologian / exegete and one day dedicate his 96 volume "Systematic Theology: Prolegomenon" to me.

Good to hear that Anja is now also a member of the famous Jim West Fan Club!
