My name is James Pate. This blog is about my journey. I read books. I watch movies and TV shows. I go to church. I try to find meaning. And, when I can’t do that, I just talk about stuff that I find interesting. I have degrees in fields of religious studies. I have an M.Phil. in the History of Biblical Interpretation from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. I also have an M.A. in Hebrew Bible from Jewish Theological Seminary, an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School, and a B.A. from DePauw University.
I finished my daily quiet time through the apocrypha/deuterocanonical
writings. I don’t have time right now to write any profound thoughts
about the experience, but it went well, far better than I expected! The
next book that I will be reading is I Enoch. I was going to go
straight to the New Testament, but I decided to do some pseudepigraphic
writings before I go there. How many, I don’t know. I am planning to
go through I Enoch and Jubilees, but beyond that, well, that’s an open
question right now.
