I am planning my research strategy. Currently we have about 9 pages of notes...give or take. The research is strong and interesting.
This afternoon I am researching many Jewish libraries that have some of their research materials available online. I have found at one library an online resource for the Encyclopedia Judaica. This is like the "Mother-Lode" of Jewish research! I don't have to lean on a lot of Christian quotes and comments to make my points.
Also planning to go to one of our local synagogues and using their library. I am setting this up with Deb who can go with me and help! Deb is an expert typist and can type at least 120 words a minute (with a high degree of accuracy).
After that, I may go to my old alma mater...Andrews University and park myself in their huge (new) library!! They have an excellent OLD TESTAMENT dep't and I may be able to sit down with Dr. Doukhan and get some of his input. THAT was will exciting...to say the least. Most of my old friends have retired and moved away. Some passed on. I was saddened to learn recently that one of my mentors passed away recently! I really loved that man...such a kind friend and a great mentor!
Will keep you informed as things move along! Hope to see YOU tomorrow!
