I’M MAKING THIS SHORT because I’ve been working all day on a new Bible video that I should be able to release soon. And I forgot about this blog article.
Then I got the book cover you’re seeing above.
This is for the book that I thought was going to run in black and white, but the publisher and editors decided to kick it up a notch, to full color. The book is on the designer’s table now. It comes out in August.
So I’m stoked about it.
Does “stoked” translate? It used to mean “excited.” But I know that the meaning of words keeps changing.
When I was exhausted one day from laying sod, I told my son I was “wasted.” Then I told someone else in the family. Then someone else.
My son heard the repeat and he said he let it slide earlier, but now he figured he should let me know that “wasted” means “drunk.”
So, I don’t say I’m wasted anymore.
But I’ll mess up on some other word later.
I can’t always keep up with the pace of the changing lingo. But I try.
This week’s free book
Pablo Sainz wins the free book this week. He chose Bible Snapshots.
I have a random drawing each week for a free book. I pluck a name from the list of subscribers to my free blog or my quarterly newsletter.
Happy reading, Pablo.
From the reply email he sent, he sounded stoked and not wasted.
I hope the date “coming out in August” was also a mistake like “wasted”! We need this book out sooner!!
I am so excited for you — I love the Book cover and the title. This will be another great teaching book – Bible 101 – the church needs these books more than ever! May God continue to Bless you with your gifts and your dedication to God’s kingdom. I enjoy all your books!
