Whew! Been a while!
While I was gone I started to get really into my fiction, and to lose interest in writing a paraphrased version of the NIV. One of my friends told me the other day that I should get back into it, and I need a sort of mental writing break from my incredibly slowly progressing novel so I've decided to continue Exodus.
I reread some of my posts and remembered how much fun it was to treat this book like any other book, with characters and plot holes and the rest. There are good things in this book, I contend, but I want to find them without someone else telling me about them--the book needs to speak for itself.
