Thanks to those who responded about the esteem in which the TDNT is held
or not held. I'm not pleased, of course, if the way I brought it up has
damaged my own credibility, but it has, at least, harmed no one else. I
had gotten the notion, I think from comments made on this list, that
TDNT was no longer held in very high regard. I sacrificed to obtain my
set while at seminary, and having always served country parishes, I
must rely almost exclusively on my own library. It is good to know I am
not getting totally out of step in my continuing to wear out the pages
of TDNT.

Thanks again
