"Make a mistake in the interpretation of one of Shakespeare's plays, falsely scan a piece of Spenserian verse, and there is unlikely to be an entailment of eternal consequence; but we can not lightly accept a similar laxity in the interpretation of Scripture. We are dealing with God's thoughts: we are obligated to take the greatest pains to understand them truly and to explain them clearly."

- D.A. Carson
Bird's Bio

First of all, "Bird" is an old childhood nickname. Can't recall how I got it.

My real name is Eric Guel and I live in Waco, Texas. I'm a 37-year-old follower of Jesus, husband, and father of five gorgeous children.

My interests are literature, photojournalism, journalism, chess, theology, hobby farming, and history.
