    Great blog. Thanks for your review of Representing Christ. Have you seen biblical training.org. If not, it looks like the kind of resource you would appreciate.

    Grace,

    1. Hi Hank,

      Yes, I have seen it and have used it a bit, but it hasn’t crossed my mind to even put it on here. Thanks for the reminder and for your book. I look forward to more from you in the future.
