Dr. Oliver Hersey graciously brought to my attention that in my book Interpreting Eden I failed to credit him adequately for original ideas of his that helped me in thinking through the issues and in writing some pieces in the book. I have asked and received forgiveness from him. I have also made corrections to the book, which will appear in a new printing. Dr. Hersey and I are reconciled in Christ, and I rejoice in the work of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has provided reconciliation.

I addressed the fact that Dr. Vern Poythress incorporated my ideas into his book Interpreting Eden without properly citing my manuscript and he, without hesitation, acknowledged his errors. In a spirit of grace and transparency, we spoke about the matter and have reconciled at a personal level. Dr. Vern Poythress has humbly agreed to provide adequate citation of my unpublished manuscript where it is needed in Interpreting Eden and the work will be reprinted.
