About this author

John H.D. Lucy is originally from the Boston area; graduated from St. Michael's College summa cum laude and received a Masters of Theological Studies from Wesley Theological Seminary in Washington, D.C.

Lucy is generally a mysterious and mysteriously good-looking fellow who has knelt next to a wild baboon, been chased by a hungry hyena (or coyote, depending on who's telling the story) on his bicycle, and climbed Mt. Washington in his dreams. All true stories.

When was the last time I posted? I have no idea. When was the last time I wrote something meaningful? I definitely don't know. When was the last time I wrote anything? A couple of weeks ago. And I now include writing letters in the category of "writing" because it sometimes makes me feel better to say, "I wrote something today!" when it was just a letter. Why is it that I have been a writer wit... Read more of this blog post »

Judith Lieu has written an excellent commentary on letters of the Bible that are often overlooked. Lieu is not romantic about these letters, either, which is good because many commentators do fall into romance concerning 1 John in particular. Lieu al ...more

I read this for a class (a seminary class, actually). A lot of good stuff here. Not going to say much about it because it's a collection of essays. Some contradict others, in a way, but that's okay. All of them are quality and whichever speaks most t ...more

I read it too long ago to properly review this book (a few months ago). All I know is that it's wonderful. Good story, great writing, and universal themes but with deep insights into the Jewish faith. Basically a must read!

It's a detective novel, so who cares about writing? Well, I do. Good writing could make a detective novel better, and bad writing can make a detective novel distracting. Unfortunately, having read another one of Mayor's Joe Gunther stories, I'm disap ...more

It's hard on me to only rate this book as two stars because the author is a Vermonter, like I now am. Unfortunaely, it's because Mayor writes about Vermont that I was disappointed. Hardly any of St. Albans history or geography shows up in this novel. ...more
