Some books of the last year

Some historical fiction comedy, Dodger by the late Terry Pratchett. Some fantastical reading, The Black Elfstone, the Skaar Invasion, as well as re-reading the The Sword of Shannara Trilogy, by Terry Brooks. An interesting read, as I have a small un-credited cameo in the book, Baba's Love, by my cousins, Bill and Cristy Millington. I've been re-reading Hitchhiker's guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams. I read the science fiction, The Diamond Age: Or, a Young Lady's Illustrated Primer, by Neal Stephenson. And those were among the plethora of books, articles, and commentaries that I consulted, referenced, or otherwise osmosized for researching and writing a ThM thesis (books like Resurrection, Immortality, and Eternal Life in Intertestamental Judaism and Early Christianity, by George W. E. Nickelsburg). Currently reading Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda.

Good News

📜 Some mostly developed theological thoughts on the good news and associated terms 📜

In the New Testament, there is a wordgroup εὐαγγέλιον, that corresponds to the noun 'good news.'  There is also a verbal form, εὐαγγελίζω, that presents the verbal idea of 'sharing/delivering good news.'  It can take different tenses and voices.
