Ta Da!!

Nathan's book has been published!!  It is called Karl Barth and the Resurrection of the Flesh: The Loss of the Body in Participatory Eschatology.  We just got our copies a couple of days ago, and I'll post a link as soon as it's available online.

Unbroken

Last night I finished the book Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand.  It's an amazing story and a great book.  It tells the life story of Louie Zamperini: olympic athlete, WWII bombardier, and Pacific POW.  The story is harrowing, exciting, suspenseful and brutal.  But the thing that makes the story so wonderful is that the end is totally surprising and absolutely delightful.  It's hard for me to express how full of charms the ending is without telling you about it.  So go get the book and read the whole thing.  Don't stop until you've finished the last page.

Brother and Sister

Just a few fun pictures of Z and Eden.

Amah brought them shirts from California:




Trying to get a good picture of them both.  The last one is my favorite:






Last night Z woke up with a bad dream and then fell asleep again in my bed.  Only a little later, Eden woke up crying and got into bed, too:
