Pray for Dave Black

Posted by on Jul 21, 2009 in personal | 2 comments

David Alan Black is my Ph.D. mentor and friend and the author of the recently released book The Jesus Paradigm. He became sick last week, and the doctor’s diagnosed him with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and sent him home.

However, they have now changed their diagnosis to malaria. Apparently, he contracted malaria during a recent trip to Ethiopia. He is being treated in a local hospital. Please pray for his recovery.
