Kendall Sholtess:
 Incidentally, Bohuslav, are you Bohemian? And does the "bohu" part of your name mean "God?" If it does, would it be the glory of God?

No, I am not Bohemian, I am Silesian. Czech Republic is made of Bohemia, Moravia and part of Silesia. The other part is in Poland.

Yes, my name is Slavic. Many Slavic names are with the -slav ending which means glory. There are names meaning glory to all kind of things like glory to sword, glory to the ruler etc. My name translates literarly "(to) God - glory". Not too popular name these days.

My Mother's maiden name is Ratzlaff, which comes from Ratislav. I think it originates in Czech.

Anyway, can't wait for Stott to come through!

 Incidentally, Bohuslav ... does the "bohu" part of your name mean "God?"

I might have thought the "bohu" part meant void/empty, as in "tohu v'bohu" (transliterated Hebrew for "formless and void") in Gen 1:2. Wink

Actually it was the name of our famous ruler of Great Moravia in 9th century who invited the Apostles to the Slavic people to his empire. By the ministry of Cyril and Methodius Old Church Slavonic became the fourth liturgical language officially recognized by Rome, after the "Pilat's languages" from the cross, Hebrew, Greek and Latin. His name Rostislav means "let the glory multiplies"

...as you see Rosie, even void is not empty with God ...it's no brainer John Stott would agree with that. Smile

I'm definitely working on more Stott.  I posted notice of this book in the Anglican forum when it was first posted.  If (when) more are posted I will put up a notice in general as well.

This is for sure the best item to start with. The BST commentaries certainly give us a good dose of his expository material - I'm not sure if they are available individually; if not that might generate a lot of interest. Next on my list of Stott books is Between Two Worlds, followed closely by The Incomparable Christ.

Thanks, I always like Stott and I don't have this one.
