Hello Dojo readers,
I wanted to let you all know that my Revelation DVD course is about to be released! Here's a low-res preview version of the Leader Intro from the first disc.
I've worked really hard on this DVD set and I've been determined that it be the best, most engaging and most affordable in-depth study of the book of Revelation on the market! Please tell your Pastor, Deacon, Bishop, small group leader, Christian Education Director, Sunday School Teacher or Campus Minister to order a copy! The first 10 people who pre-order before June 1st get free shipping! (Email email@example.com to place a pre-order)
Thanks for all the support, everyone. And a special thanks to Americus First UMC in Americus, GA for hosting the study!

I've just released the entire "Apocalypse Now??" course on audio CD in a 10-disc set that people can now purchase. The cost is $35 (plus P&H). Here's a description of the course:
War in the Middle-East! One-world Government! Tsunamis! Earthquakes! Are we living in the “Last Days”? Is Armageddon right around the corner? What does the Bible teach about all this? Is the Apocalypse at hand?? Questions like these concern what theologians call “eschatology”, that is, study of the end-times. In this course James-Michael Smith leads participants through a survey of various ways Christians have looked at the end times and the relevant Biblical passages. Challenging popular misconceptions put forth by the media (both Christian and secular), “Apocalypse Now??” will equip the reader of Scripture to understand and interpret the Bible’s teaching on eschatology in a thoughtful and reflective manner and read Scripture on its own terms rather than through the lens of modern imagination. Regardless of one’s end-time views, this course will challenge as well as edify the believer in their walk with the God who controls all human history!
I'll be releasing my Revelation DVDs soon as well! Stay tuned for more details.

In the ongoing effort to keep my Biblical languages up, I recently got a copy of Zondervan's Reader's Hebrew and Greek Bible.
I had the original Reader's Hebrew Bible and Reader's Greek New Testament separately, but I found that I didn't use them very often because I didn't want to have to carry around both books. Now that I've got the 1-volume version, I'd like to get rid of the separate volumes. They're in practically brand new condition (except for a couple of pencil notes and highlighted words here and there) and I'd love to get them in the hands of someone who would use them. They're perfect resources for keeping your Hebrew and/or Greek up, as each page contains glosses at the bottom for words that occur less frequently. And the bindings are that sweet Italian Duo-Tone that feels so nice in your hands! :)
I'd love it if I could get $20 for the NT and $30 for the OT. (They retail at $34.99 and $49.99 respectively...what a bargain!) You could pay through paypal and I'd ship them at no charge.
First come, first serve. Lemme know at firstname.lastname@example.org
They really are great resources!
