I am Thomas W. Butler. I have just re-joined this list after
almost two years away. I am a United Methodist Pastor, having just
made a transition from serving the First United Methodist Church of
Tracy, California to being the Senior Pastor at Sparks United
Methodist Church in Sparks, Nevada.
I am the author of Let Her Keep It. Thank you, Q Bee, for
recommending my book. Tobias, I would be pleased to send you a copy
of my book. I would be delighted if you would consider reviewing
it. Unfortunately, I do not have a subscription to JSNT, nor ready
access to a library that carries it. Would you be willing to send me
a copy of your article (either on-line, off-list or via snail mail)?
I have a feeling that you and I have a lot to discuss.
I don't want this posting to exceed the protocol length, so I will
post a second message with a brief explanation of my theories and
method. I look forward to a stimulating dialog.
Yours in Christ's service,
Tom Butler, Pastor
Sparks United Methodist Church

I'm very pleased to see you here once again.
Your book has been most helpful in teaching the layers of the fourth
gospel. I've given your address to several people and I hope they have
bought it from you. It had better stay in print so that I can continue
to send people your way. It is a very well crafted piece of work.
Peace and blessings to all. May you find the Christ in each person you
meet this Christmas season; and may you be the Christ to each of them.
