  1. Hey Todd:

    I just re-discovered your newsletter site. Would you please put me on a subscribers list if there one?

    Also, I have made heavy use of your pictorial series and am now using 1 Sam for a semester of teaching. I was disappointed to see there is not a 2d Samuel. Can we expect one?

    Blessings to you for a healthy and prosperous 2021.
