For the next week and a half (until the end of the month) I shall be on holiday, visiting family and friends in England. This is also going to be a lovely chance to dip into a few of London’s best theological bookshops. YeeHaaa!

I can hear my wife fervently praying right now: ‘Lord, please stop my husband from going mad and buying too much with money we just don’t have’.

Naturally, I was prepared for such praying as this, so I prayed in faith yesterday that God would do the opposite of whatever my wife would pray today, so I’m safe enough.

Naturally, this means that my blogging will slow down, but it will by no means stop. In fact, I plan, among other things, to whip through more of the Bauckham series.

I shall still be accessing my e-mail, so if you get no reply from me then it is probably best to take it personally.

Given the baggage limits, I assume then that you're heading off with an empty suitcase and just one pair of underpants ... and a small Gideon's bible of course. :-) happing book hunting. I spent a day in Hay-on-Wye a few weeks back. Book heaven ... visa card hell.

I fear you may be shocked by the cost of things in the UK.
I buy my UK theological books from the US (Dove) because even though they've been printed here and shipped to America and then shipped back to me it still works out a lot cheaper.
You might find interesting 2nd hand stuff in North London.
Have a great time.

Hi Jason!
One pair of underpants goes a longg way when you turn them inside out every now and then.

Hi madpriest, nice name!
I am sadly well aquainted with English second hand book prices, specially those of the book shop in north London starting with 'P' - I grew up in Surrey. Thanks for your comment, and keep up the good work being a mad priest. Actually, I've got a stash of interesting incense here by the way - was tricky to get that through customs. £15 per 100gramms, and you'll have your flock singing like never before. Contact details on blog.

Just found your blog, I think it's quite clever/informative! I'll be back, keep up the good work! Enjoy your vacation.
