Hi Phil,

Thanks for mentioning my review of Christology of the Later Fathers. Just a quick correction: my name is Nick Norelli, not B. H. -- I end all of my posts with B"H (baruch hashem) which is just my little way of saying "bless God" at the end of each post.

Hi Nick;

Very sorry about the confusion. I really should remember you as your blog is regularly featured on the Carnivals. I think I was colating the carnival a bit too fast.
