Personal/Theological Notebook: Barnes' Patristics Library as Temptation

Raynor Library closed at six today and will do so again tomorrow as part of their Fourth of July observance, so I moved over to Barnes' office, which I think I mentioned I'm now babysitting during his sabbatical year. After I gave the plant its weekly watering, I set up and got to work. But I'm surrounded by Barnes' library and all the books are calling to me to come and play. This is the worst place to do the dissertation, because it's all the stuff that I do but that I'm not doing in the dissertation. Temptation is extra sexy when you can pass it off as further work in your area....
