Award of Merit

True Confession: I have a growing stack of materials near my computer -- items I intend to blog about, sometime, but haven't managed to get to just yet.

In flipping through the stack today I noticed something I wanted to make sure our readers knew about.  As it turns out, this is something I've been holding onto since June, but on the theory that later is better than never, here goes:

Mark Dever's excellent book The Message of the Old Testament received an award of merit in Christianity Today's annual book awards -- in "Biblical Studies," no less.  The book is an exceptionally good resource to have on hand when first beginning to read, teach or preach any book from the Old Testament.
