The books that I will be reading for my philosophy class arrived about a week ago. Well, one is still AWOL. In the mail I found John D. Caputo’s Philosophy and Theology, Diogenes Allen and Eric Springfield’s Philosophy for Understanding Theology, 2nd Ed., and James K.A. Smith’s Who’s Afraid of Postmodernism: Taking Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault to Church. Sadly, For Faith and Clarity: Philosophical Contributions to Christian Theology edited by James K. Beilby is not to be found.
Amazon.com sent me an email telling me there was an attempted delivery. I didn’t find any notice in my mailbox or on my apartment door. I went to the local USPS office and the poor man that helped me was perplexed. I showed him the email on my phone with the tracking number and he didn’t know where it could have gone. He said he would ask the carrier and then call me. I haven’t received any such call. So who know?! I hope it arrives soon.
Thanks for sharing in my pain.
That’s horrible! I haven’t had a book lost via mail . . . yet *knock on wood*. Maybe this confusion will increase your faith and bring about clarity.
Ha! Or I’ll lose my faith. Why God, why?!
I’ve had two books lost in the mail. One was Fee’s New Testament Exegesis which someone bought me off of my Amazon wish list like 3 years ago. I’ve since gotten my own copy from the WTS Bookstore. The other was actually a book that you sent me, Brian, but you said it ended up at your Mom’s or something, right? I can’t remember what it was but you had wanted me to review it when you were running the Azusa blog.
My other bad experience was when the post office lost my copy of the Synopsis of the Four Gospels. After waiting more than 2 weeks for something that should have been there in less than 5 days I had CBD send a new one. The original finally turned up so I sent it back. That was nerve-racking 3 weeks though!
