MacDiv and Tons of Books to Read

As some of our readers already know, I was accepted into the Ph.D. program in New Testament at McMaster Divinity College to study under Dr. Stanley Porter. So, my wife and I will be moving at the end of the summer to Hamilton, Ontario Canada, where MacDiv is located. A few of the classes I will be taking next year have posted the reading lists online. For one class, the reading list is over forty books (that is a four followed by a zero!). Some of the text books cost over a hundred dollars. I created an Amazon wish list with just books I need for classes. Right now it has about half the books needed for one class. If anyone would like to help my wife and I out with buying these books, I am posting this link. We are very excited about moving and would covet your prayers and encouragements as we move forward. The goal, at this point, is to continue blogging throughout our time at MacDiv. I would imagine that most of my posts will be in the area of New Testament, but not exclusively.


  1. Wow. Are these just for one semester?

  2. Adam,

    The list of books I linked to are just some of the books for one class.

  3. A book on translating Greek into Chinese? Are you really going to use that book for one of your classes?
