My copy of Mehrdad Fatehi’s The Spirit’s Relation to the Risen Lord in Paul has finally arrived! There was some frustration with waiting for this book on my part. I was sent a tracking number with the email saying it had shipped. So I tracked it and saw that it left Jamesburg, NJ on the 27th. Jamesburg is literally up the street from me (about 20-30 minutes depending on which part you’re going to). It was logical to assume that it would have arrived the next day since it only had to travel half and hour. But for some reason or another they sent it north to Ridgefield and even further north to Jersey City before finally sending it down to me. It was frustrating to keep tracking this package and seeing that it was getting further away from me rather than closer to me. But I have it now so all is well in the universe!
I will say this though—it’s not “brand new” (no Barnes & Noble book ever is) At best it’s “very good” or maybe even “like new” but there’s a price sticker on the back (for $81) and a couple of small dents on the spine. My guess is that it sat in a store and never got purchased because of the high price tag so they offered it for cheap online and due to God’s providential insight I ended up with it. But the text is clean and the binding is tight (it’s a WUNT volume after all!) so I’m happy as a clam (although I never understood why a clam would be happy since they stink, taste bad, and people kill them and eat them by the millions).
Alright, time to read.
