Robert M. Price should be canonised..

Looking through my journal from March 2010 I was reminded of this Miraculous Event:
Got to work this morning and Eleanor handed me a mail package – my copy of The Pre-Nicene New Testament has arrived!!  So excited – Robert Price is not just a great academic scholar but also a terrific writer - modern, pacey and humorous.  I had to visit the Kelvin Grove campus and took the book to read on the shuttle bus.  I showed it to Naomi who was lunching in her office – as soon as she opened the new book, we were startled by the sound of a sharp report!  Perplexed, we looked around for the source to discover that her thick glass salad container (chilled from the fridge) had spontaneously split into several pieces.  It may not be the Red Sea, but I thought “this book is going to kick arse.”
