A few months ago I had the strangest opening to what has become (I think) the beginnings of a very nice friendship: a guy gave me a book.
Okay, that doesn’t sound so weird. But the guy who gave me this book was approximately five time zones to the East of me (he lives somewhat North of London), and the book he sent me is currently retailing at around $100. This, I knew, was the beginning of a fast friendship.
Since then, I’ve been paying close attention to a guy who lets himself be known only as “Hobbes,” on the basis that he may soon be going into mission work in a hostile field, where having his religious thoughts easily searchable on the web might be a bad thing. Since I’m currently at the top of the list for Google and Yahoo! searches for “Kyle French.” I completely understand.
At any rate, I dig this guy. He says a lot of things that I agree with, but more importantly for me, he seems to think about things in the same sort of way that I do. That’s a rarity (as, no doubt, you can fathom). There are some disctinctions. You will note in *his* writing a much more stiff upper lip.
So I would recommend, to those of you who enjoy reading what I have to say, that you click over and take a peek at what’s going on at Castle Sands. You might enjoy it. But if you don’t, you may want to brace yourself. I suspect there will be a good deal of interaction between that site and this for a while.

Thanks for the kind words, Kyle. We are all waiting for your review of the book!
By the way, I was born with a “stiff upper lip” simply by virtue of being English. There are some things that even God cannot change…
Is that the light reading you were doing over Christmas?
You’re right: I like the blog. Especially the question about which is more pleasing to God, perfect orthodoxy or humility — shades of Thomas a’Kempis
