I love Fat.

Ben Myers said...

I love Fat too. I actually know who this person is — and he's also written a guest-post which will be coming soon.

I don't know him (or her) but I love what I hear from his/her heart, soul, mind.

Fat's just another alter ego for you Ben - Faith And Theology. It's too obvious. If you want to buy yourself a book, just do it man! You don't need to go to these lengths...;-)

Good one AT. Just like KF

Ben and voters,

I don't believe I deserve the accolade but the books look great. I will have to let you know of my choice after the weekend and some consultation with my lovely wife. How does one choose between ministry, Wesley and sin?

I did rather like the runner-up entry - it was my vote.

It was an interesting coincidence Anthony but I have been Fat since early school days and Ben is assuredly not fat. (insert carefully googled picture of a grinning round face here)

Thankyou.

Fat

"How does one choose between ministry, Wesley and sin?"

Do something sinful, feel bad about it, and then decide to preach four times a day to make up for it.

Nice work, David!

Fat said...

Thank You David.

Ben - after some 700 kilometres of discussion I believe Sin is winning.

Ben Myers said...

"Sin is winning." Yeah, too much travel can have that effect.

I'll get the book to you some time this week.

Fat said...

Thank you for the book and the bonus extra as well.

I have enjoyed immersing myself in sin whilst I explored the glittering vices.

One comment on page 30 is worth quoting here: "By the thirteenth century, therefore, not only theologeons and clerics, but lay people too, knew the vices."

I used the book as a basis for a Christmas Dinner address to the local Masons which was well received (although my Santa Claus Ho Ho Ho tie wasn't quite up to their dress standards.

I will email my address to Ben - loosely based on the book, condensed into 8 minutes Reader's Digest style, it is a cross between a book review and out and out plagiarism.

Thanks once more and best wishes for 2010.
