2016 has been a productive year so far. At the beginning of the year I ran a survey asking what I should focus on with my research and writing time this year.
My own personal goal was to publish some stuff I’d written but simply needed to finish, and to get it done before the summer. Rather than pursue publishing the traditional way, I set up Appian Way Press as my imprint/publisher, and used CreateSpace to publish two books:
- Lexical Commentary on the Pastoral Epistles: First Timothy
- Second Timothy: Notes on Grammar, Structure, and Syntax
One takeaway from the survey was noting interest in material from some classes I’d taught in adult education settings years ago. So next up on the Appian Way Press schedule, I think, is work on a class on the Apostles’ Creed. I hope to re-work my existing notes into a study guide and also a teacher’s edition.
Before that, however, I have an outstanding commitment for an introduction and translation to the Second Apocalypse of John for volume 2 of New Testament Apocrypha: More Noncanonical Scriptures. (more info, volume 1) Once that’s in the can, then it’ll be full-tilt boogie on the Apostles’ Creed.
Thanks, everyone, for your support and encouragement!
