Mark Stevens has called upon fellow nerds to showcase their desks and/or shelves. To answer his call, I am offering two pictures of my own–both of which were taken in my office at the University.
On and around the desk: notebook and pen for reading notes, trusty laptop (that’s slowly becoming not-so-trusty), great quote from Thomas Jefferson* (on the blue partition), my ‘Paul’s Letters in a Week’ reading list** (blue partition), Uni-supplied PC, Greek vocab cards (some are my original ones from 2000), coffee mug, NA27 and duct-taped NASB, and some devotional reading supplied by AW Tozer (on top of the PC tower).
On the shelves: if you look close enough, you can probably make out what’s in stock. For some context, the Survey of the NT (flat on the top), the first row of standing books on the left and the two lying flat belong to the Uni; the rest are mine. (cue Gollum voice: all mine). For my eagle-eyed viewers, there are some differences between this picture of my shelves and the last time I posted on it.
* The quote reads: ‘Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction.’
** For those interested: 1) 1-2 Thess, Phlm; 2) Gal, Phil; 3) 1 Cor; 4) Rom; 5) 2 Cor; 6) Eph, Col; 7) 1-2 Tim, Titus
