My friend Ian first hooked me on Rikk Watts in late 2014, with a loan of the audio CD from Rikk’s seminar, “Knowing the Bible, Doing the Word“. I can’t hope to do justice to Rikk’s expertise in a blog post, but here’s my take on this lecture that made such a lasting impact on me.
I first met Jimmy Dorrell when I was a Baylor student, in the early 90s. I got in the habit of hanging out with the Mauldin family, Jimmy’s next-door neighbors, and their kids often played together. I spent many an afternoon on the trampoline and chasing around the neighborhood with Mauldin and Dorrell kids. Eventually the Mauldins moved, and I lost touch with the Dorrells.
