My Conversation with James Romm about “The Landmark Arrian: The Campaigns of Alexander”. Also A Reading from the New Testament to Celebrate the Easter Season.

April 25, 2011

haven’t written anything in awhile. Busy. So here are two things to make up for the long gap between postings.

Back in March, March 10th to be exact, I had a great conversation with James Romm concerning the new edition of Arrian he’d edited for the Landmark Series of  Ancient Histories. This was, at least for me, a fun conversation. It’s not every day that you get to talk to a scholar of such stature about one of the central figures in history.

I spent the days leading up to and a few after Christmas 2009 at The Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, NY.

It was a wonderful few days spent in quiet–reading, writing and combing through contents of the small gift shop on the premises. It was in the gift shop that I came across the Knox translation of the New Testament. I really had no intention of buying a book while I was up there but I picked this up and it was so readable a translation that I couldn’t stop myself. Whenever I find something that unique and special I’m always afraid that if I don’t take advantage of that moment it might be lost forever.

So here is my reading from the Book of Matthew that I’ve now read for the past two years on the Thursday of Holy Week.
