Having received my share of brickbats in the past, I am greatly pleased to tell you that the person who mistook James E Adams’ booklet for something I had written has emailed me, very graciously apologizing. I accepted it in as gracious a manner as I could in return. It is always reassuring that there is still someone out there who isn’t going to beat up on you for something you wrote, I appreciated his note and think that we could be good friends, given the opportunity.
Frankly, I wasn’t all that disturbed about the simple, but understandable, error. It isn’t the first time it happened. When I taught at Westminster Theological Seminary, and James was a student there, sometimes our mail got mixed up.
My only reason for writing was to remind us all (including me) to be extra careful about references and citations.
Thanks again, brother, for your very kind email.
