Jimbo's Book



One of the greatest delights of this internet world is that you meet new friends, brothers and sisters in Christ. My buddy Jim Cronfel, a Reformed guy (one day he will come to the light ;-)), sent me a copy of his first book. The subject is the idea of annihilationism, and Jim does the job of critiquing this concept with a passion. Congratulations to Jim, it is not often that one writes a book that the masses can read and it is about Christian faith too. I know of only a few in Evangelical world that believes this, one is Dr Stott mentioned in the book and I think the Adventists believe in this concept too. He would appreciate a comment or two.

Speaking of books, I think it is a privilege to have written a book. Perhaps also, I can turn my thesis into a book one day, when it is finished. Its tentative title is "Contextualizing Description Logics" or something like that. My wife is looking forward to it as she thinks it would be a wonderful gift idea. She says it has lots of uses for every day folk like her. She says, it can be used as a door stopper, paper weight, or a decorative item. She is a very perceptive and clever girl.

Lito, you are one of about twenty people that I have been begging to read me book and review it for 6 months. Something tells me you will be the first if not the only one to bless me like this.

In Christ,
Jim

Jim,

One of my defects is attention deficit syndrome, and just one of those things that makes me side tracked. Hope to give one over the weekend.

Vegemite! We can not live without them, that thing was invented here, hope you tasted Oz pride and joy.

1 JOhn 4:19 We love because he first loved us. 20 If anyone says, "I love God," yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For anyone who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, cannot love God, whom he has not seen. 21 And he has given us this command: Whoever loves God must also love his brother.


Dear Lito,

You are the first person to have ever taken the time to review my book at Amazon. But I love you because of the LORD. Please forgive my outburst. I need all members of the body of Christ as much as I need Christ. God bless you and your Gospel as well.

In Christ,
Jim
