The Business of Interpretation

I started working at Presbyterian Publishing Corporation almost two months ago. PPC houses the imprints of Westminster John Knox, Geneva Press, and The Thoughtful Christian.

I thought I would go through my personal bookshelves and pull out every book that is one of these imprints, or an older imprint that pre-dates the creation of WJK.

The four pictures above are the result of this little exercise.

Are you worried these are all the books I own? Nope. You're missing a nice view of the gajillion other books I have scattered all over the house. It is also true I used to have more books. My household has been through at least five good book purges post-seminary.

I love books. I have them in paper format and in e-book format. I love to check out books from the library. I love receiving books as gifts. I love looking through other people's bookshelves.

In this blog, I will be posting musings, reflections, rants, and general randomness as a part of my ministry. I am doing church relations for PPC, sharing about PPC's products, and listening to the church for what it is that you out there really want to see PPC produce. I am in the business of interpretation. I hope you will read this blog, share it, maybe even check out some of the resources available. But most of all, I hope you will find something to laugh about, roll your eyes over, or ponder.
