seriously, i may understand the word minimalist incorrectly also. not a
theologian by study, but by living, i simply explain my use of
minimalist by those more authoritative than i. such as dever in his
recent group of articles in basor and bar and such in dialogue with
reich and thompson. dever and shanks both use minimalist and not
minimist. and this is an interesting clarification, mr. wilson.
