Help a Brother Out

UPDATE: Several kind folks sent along copies of the article. Thank you all! 

The other day Denny Burk referenced the article “The Obedience of the Eternal Son,” International Journal of Systematic Theology 15/2 (2013): 114-34. Does anyone have a copy of this article that they could pass along? I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks!

I Need This!

UPDATE: My pastor made an excellent point. People could donate to my church and receive a tax deduction and then the church will provide the equipment for me! Something to ponder!

I mentioned this on Twitter a few minutes ago but it bears repeating. I spent the better part of my day yesterday editing some video footage in Adobe Premiere Pro and even though it wasn’t all the way complete I wanted to render the rough cut and see how everything was coming together. Well, I went to export the file and as soon as Premiere started encoding the video my MacBook Pro heated up to over 200° F! Last time I tried to encode a large video file with Adobe Media Encoder it heated up beyond that point and shut down! So I cancelled the process and have no way to render this video.

But that brings me to my present point; namely that I’m going to need a more powerful machine. I love the MBP for most of the stuff I do with it but the more I get into video editing work the less useful it is. I really need a Mac Pro. The problem is that I can’t afford one at the moment. In order to get a refurbished (which is fine; I honestly wouldn’t get brand new when the refurbs are just as good and a little less expensive) 6 core Mac Pro I need about $3400 (not including tax)! I’d like to get dual 27″ (2560×1440) monitors to go with it but I can survive with my 24″ setup for now.

In any event, you have not because you ask not, so I thought I’d ask if anyone wanted to help out. You never know; I may have a silent reader who has been waiting to bless me for years and was looking for the right opportunity to do so. I may have several readers who would all like to make small (or large) donations towards the cause. I don’t know. One thing I do know is that I don’t do this stuff for my personal enjoyment, nor do I turn a profit off of it. My labors are for the ministry and trust me, if my church could afford it, I’d already have it.

I wish I had a non-profit set up where people could receive tax credit for helping me out. In truth, I need to get that ball rolling since I’m ordained now and can make that a reality. I’m just waiting to hear from the Lord on the few things before I go that direction. But that’s fodder for another post to be written at another time. In any event, if anyone wants to buy me a Mac Pro, I’d appreciate it. Thanks! ;-)

Help a Brother Out!

Okay, so I’m in need of a bunch of articles, and I have one of my heroes (Fred Sanders) to blame! A while back he mentioned the Symposium on Kendall Soulen‘s  The Divine Name(s) and the Holy Trinity: Distinguishing the Voices published in the Winter 2014 issue of Pro Ecclesia, which reminds me that I (1) need to finish Soulen’s book, and (2) really need to read these articles! If anyone can help me out I’d greatly appreciate it!

And now today I see Fred mention that Evangelical Quarterly 86/1 has a number of articles that originally appeared as papers discussing Stephen R. Holmes’ The Quest for the Trinity last July. Trust me, I need to read these articles as well! So the same applies: If anyone can help me out I’d greatly appreciate it!

It has just been brought to my attention that there is a review of Chris Tilling’s Paul’s Divine Christology on p. 83 of latest edition of JSNT 35.5 (2013). Chris is looking for a copy and I am as well. So please, dear readers, scan this thing, grab a PDF, tear it out of the journal and put it in an envelope; whatever you must to get this important review to me ASAP! Thanks in advance!
