I am happy to report success in discovering my Piper books, along with a half dozen other boxes filled with Ryrie, Hamm, BDAG, commentaries, etc... Papa Revival is pretty excited to dig into the books too.
I also made a fantastic discovery - the Faith Baptist Bible College & Theological Seminary Student Directories from 1999-2002. This book was generally referred to as the Hog Log, for reasons that shall remain undefined...except for the following bit of folklore-
Q: Three Faith girls, a blonde, a brunette, and a redhead, are standing on the gym. Which one falls first?
A: The gym.
(I can pass on such a joke since I am happily and proudly married to a Faith alumnus)
Amber and I haven't looked through these books since Judd Pietsch came to visit us in 2009. I'd forgotten how much fun it is.

I also want to congratulate Tony and Theresa on the birth of their fourth child, Riley Louis O'Tool. He is a handsome little guy and is blessed with awesome parents, a great older brother and two lovely sisters who will be sure to have a big influence in his life.
