So I mentioned in my previous post that my geek-o-meter was off the charts. And now I shall tell you why.
When I was at Northwest University, I knew a young man named Kengo. Kengo was a Japanese student studying biblical literature, as was I. I was always in awe of the library that he had created over his 4 years at northwest. He was a devoted student and his library was giigantic.
After graduation Kengo moved back to Japan and stored his books and other belongings at Don Ross’ house (Kengo attended tNC back in the day too). He must have planned to ship them over or something, or maybe he wanted to move back to the states some day. Whatever his plans were he gave up on those and told the Ross and Ushikubo families that they could do whatever they wanted with those books. And they said that I could have them.
So yesterday I hauled 5 boxes of books out of the Ross Basement and today I unloaded them into an undisclosed location. And now for all the book geeks out there I want to show you want I have inherited. If you are not interested in books I would recommend you stop now. Or if you know that you might covet this new collection of mine, turn away.
For those who are still with me:
Now with a little bit more organization:
there are probably several hundred dollars of books that I have just inherited, and many of them I have no immediate need for, but someday I’m going to learn Hebrew.
So thank you Kengo, I appreciate your generosity and whenever I read one of these books I will think of and pray for you wherever you are.
