FOR YOUR DIARY: Look out for our sessions on Textual Criticism in the next week or two; we're looking forward to introducing you to a book that should be in every disciple's locker. And we'll also be doing some videos together as a couple looking at Dane Ortlund's wonderful book, Gentle and Lowly. Podcast preview here and YouTube short here.
