Hi Andy,
Thanks for the very interesting list of books! I'll be looking forward to your comments on it.
We met on past July at the symposium in Tyndale (the Brazilian who is now working in Uruguay).
I've lost your e-mail, but few seconds ago I remembered Dahlia sent us an address list from that event. So, now I hope to keep in touch with you.
Many thanks and blessings to your ministry,

Good to hear from you. I hope you, your family and your ministry continue to do well in Uruguay into the new year ahead. It was great being with you in Toronto. Do stay in touch.

Andy Le Peau and Linda Doll describe how this came to be a hallmark of InterVarsity Press in Heart. Soul. Mind. Strength, an anecdotal history spanning the sixty years from the founding of IVP in 1947 to the present day.
