Thanks for your illuminating comment on the the larger traditional context
of the "wine for thy belly's sake" snippet in 1 Timothy, and welcome to the
List. I take it you're in that set with Malherbe and Meeks, etc? It sounds
like a very interesting dissertation and I hope you will find a publisher.
>From my own vantage, It's nice to have yet another Classicist on the list
(although we're still a tiny minority!) and I know that U. of Cincinnati
has a fine tradition in the field; finally, you add to the already strong
contingent of Tarheels on the List--I myself make my summer home in Yancey
County and will retire there some time not very far off.
