Looting London School of Theology bookshop

My special thanks to Phil Groom, the London School of Theology bookshop manager, for some seriously generous special deals! I filled my bags with numerous terrific volumes, and in the process cleaned out all of the money I had received for Christmas from relatives. In other words, Santa delivered (albeit a tad late):

1) Four Views on Salvation in a Pluralistic World (with contributions from John Hick, Pinnock and McGrath). I love the format of this series.
2) Paul and First-Century Letter Writing, by E. R. Richards. This attractive volume will not only serve many a pleasurable hour of study, but will fill a gaping hole in my own knowledge.
3) Beyond NT Theology, by Heikki Räisänen. Oh yes, oh yes! I’m rather excited about devouring this one.
4) Paul. A Jew on the Margins, by Calvin Roetzel. Just £5! If it weren’t for the stubble, Phil, I would kiss your rosy cheeks …
5) Narrative Dynamics in Paul, ed. Bruce Longenecker. This is a superb collection of essays by world renowned scholars.
6) Paul, by C.K. Barrett. I had to finally buy this little gem.

Most of these were half-price!

Finally, thank you to those of you who have e-mailed me in the past few days. Unfortunately, my parents are only equipped with one of these demonic ‘dial-up’ modems from hell, and this has made accessing my 1und1 account rather testing. I’ll be sure to reply as soon as possible, and certainly when I return from holiday.

Thank God for stubble! I knew bookselling could be dangerous, just hadn't realised what a close shave your visit was...

Thanks for the kind remarks: look forward to seeing you again soon.

3) Beyond NT Theology, by Heikki Räisänen.

4) Paul. A Jew on the Margins, by Calvin Roetzel.

Both of these are excellent works, enjoy.

So what's the "Wahrheitsgehalt" of this sentence of your earlier post: "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."?
Or have you just taken our Alias-DVDs with you and got hooked? (-:

Thank you all for your comments, and Volker, that is just a creative tension. But the critic may suggest that the original plan failed to take account of the limitations of dial-up...
