If you’ve kept up for my blog for a little while, you’ll remember that I suffered a bit of angst attemtping to outline the book of 1 John. The progression in that book… well, there really isn’t one. It’s all intertwined and free flowing and beautiful, but not linear.
Well, I’m working on the book of Hebrews now, and finding it to be going nearly as slowly, but for an entirely different reason. The author of Hebrews is very linear and very logical, and I can track with the points quite easily. However, the style is so tremendously skillful and fluid from one point to the next, it’s difficult to figure out where to put the division.
I never thought I’d wish someone would have used less effective transitions between paragraphs… whew.
