The JWFC reconvenes to draft the following ‘fan mail’
I am being bowled over by the generosity of people lately. I'll tell more tomorrow, but tonight I have to dedicate this to one man: Dr Jim West.
Yes, he's been at it again – this time it was simply ridiculous. Deny it as hard as he likes, Jim is a very nice man! He has gone and given me
All of these:
Yes, volume after volume of Karl Barth's Gesamtausgabe!! Unbelievable! Not only is this Christmas, Birthday, Easter and everything else wrapped up in one, he splashed in a few more random volumes as well. I'm still staggering around in joy!
If I were that way inclined, Jim, you would certainly get a kiss from me. As I am not (note that, Eerdmans), you get a firm handshake and a most grateful grin!

A short poem of appreciation:
Crikey, Jim West has sent me Karl Barth’s Gesamtausgabe!
And they are all such a lovely Farbe – (creamy white, to be precise)
I just can’t wait to get stuck in,
Open to change my thinking again (well, it ends with ‘in’ even if it doesn’t exactly rhyme – poets can take such liberties, you see),
Dr Jim West, he is the man,
Not a woman, but definitely a man (note that, Eerdmans)
Tune in tomorrow for more on the 'Chris is a lucky git' channel.
