Simon Winchester

I am reading 3 of his books at once, the prime one being The professor
and the Madman, an intellectual discovery related to the editorship of
the Oxford English Dictionary. It has renewed my enthusiasm for The New
English Bible, one of my primary sources for study in seminary. I bought
my first NEB in 1970 for five dollars, a gift from a man whose father
had committed suicide and for whom I preached my first funeral.
