If you would like to contact us, you can do so through the form at the bottom of this page. If you do contact us, we ask you to please bear patiently with us as it may take some time for us to get back with you. As we’re sure you know, there is only so much time in a day. In addition to the non-negotiable priority we place on spending time with the Lord, maintaining a strong marriage, and instructing our children in the faith, we also have many other work, family, and ministry-related responsibilities. Therefore, we truly appreciate your graciousness, and ask you to please not interpret a delay in response as a write-off or as a lack of interest on our part in communicating with you. We’ll do our best to get back with you as we are able.
If, while reading the Blessed Hope Translation (BHT), you come upon any errors in spelling, punctuation, and the like, we would be truly grateful if you would let us know. Those are easy fixes, and it shouldn’t take us too long to implement those kinds of changes on the website. After years of staring at little words, they sometimes start running together! If you have questions or suggestions related to the translation itself, please feel free to contact us in regard to those as well. If you do initiate correspondence with us on this level, though, we humbly request that you do so according to the outlined contact procedure:
Please first take the time to read through the different parts of the translation section of the website. It may be that some of your questions are addressed there.
Next, if you still have a question related to a translation choice made in a particular verse, please take the time to check out the translator’s notes. It may be that your question or concern is addressed there. If, in a translator’s note, a source or a consulted translation is cited, please take the time to find and check out the source or the consulted translation. It may be that in the process of doing so your question or concern is addressed.
If you have taken the time to do 1 and 2 (in most cases it will be quickly apparent whether someone actually has or not), and yet your question or concern is still not addressed, at this point you may feel free to contact us. When you do so, we ask you to please: 1) share with us a little about yourself; 2) be cordial; and 3) if you are suggesting a change, use clear and sound argumentation, which includes refraining from ad hominem (ad hominem is a logical fallacy that takes place when someone marshals personal attacks against the proponent of a certain position or argument rather than actually addressing the question or issue under examination), appeals to majority (i.e., making claims that something is true simply because a large number or a majority of people believe it to be true), and other kinds of logical fallacies.
