Not Theology, but a tool...

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Okay - that is pretty cool.

It can be useful when examining the movement of people during biblical times (e.g. Paul's missionary journeys) and it could also be used for authors who are trying to make long distance travel in historical and/or fantasy novels more realistic.

I've bookmarked it. I don't know if I'll ever actually use it for anything other than playing around, but I'd like to have the option.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.
