About meI'm an old codger and, like most LibraryThing-ers, a bibliophile. I have an eclectic formal education with degrees in Radio and Television, Bible, History, and Experimental Psychology. I am an ordained minister of the Gospel. I am a retired college educator and college administrator. I am a proficient, although self-taught, computer programmer and amateur magician. By those who have seen me perform, I'm known as "The World's Most Amateur Magician."
About my libraryWhen I retired, I gave half of my library away (N > 1,500 books). My giveaways included the bulk of my Bible commentaries, Bible dictionaries, Bible encyclopedias, lexicons, concordances, Sunday School lesson annuals, theology books and sermon books, many of which were shipped in barrels to New Zealand with a graduating senior. (I now use eBooks, CD-ROMS, the Internet, and PDF downloads for my Bible study and sermon/lesson preparations. For example, I downloaded the complete, still-in-copyright, Bible Study Textbook Series -- "The Old Green Commentaries" -- freely available at no cost from College Press at http://www.collegepress.com). My old psychology textbooks and academic reading materials went to the Johnson Bible College library, to faculty and students, and to McKays Used Book Store.
