This is information on my couse work at General Theological Seminary. My hope has been to transcribe all my classnotes, add information I find interesting from read, and simply detail my academic work. I haven't gotten very far at this point - way too busy to attempt everything. I am hoping, however, to improve. It is hard to believe a year+ has already gone by!
