From time to time we list needed books or videos at our Amazon.com KGOV Research Wish List or we list them right here at kgov.com/wish-list. Obtaining these resources would help us greatly in our work at Bob Enyart Live, Theology Thursday, Real Science Radio, and even American Right To Life and Denver Bible Church.
The most important resources on our list right now are...
Writings of Early Scholars in the Ancient Near East, Egypt, Rome, and Greece 2010 by Walter de Gruyter (in English and German) [This probably replaces our need for an earlier request we listed, an English version of Erik Hornung: Zwei ramessidische Königsgräber. Ramses IV. und Ramses VII. von Zabern, Mainz 1990.]
Link to AbeBooks for this text... [This hasn't been easy to locate; uncertain details; Ramses IV Book of Nut" including information on "36 Decans".]
So if you'd like to consider helping purchase an important resource, just click on over to our KGOV Research Wish List at Amazon.com.

* Already Received: Thank you guys so very much! See below for the latest resources to be purchased for RSR research by our wonderful listeners! (Thank you ALL so very much! And please forgive us, but feel free to let us know, if we've not gotten around to listing a resource that you have so generously purchased for our research.)
- Interpreting Eden: A Guide to Faithfully Reading and Understanding Genesis 1-3 by Harvard Ph.D. Vern Poythress. (Looking especially for his scholarly take on ancient cultures and their teaching on a dome-covered Earth, for our work on rsr.org/raqia. We've already accessed the snippets of this book that appear online.)
- The Documentary Hypothesis [updated link] by Umberto Cassuto (mentioned in Tim Mahoney's Patterns of Evidence: The Moses Controversy.) Phenomenal little book! (If you'd like to do the research to determine whether the English translation is now in the public domain, please feel free to forward your information and conclusion to Bob@rsr.org and if it is, we will scan and upload it in its entirety online. Thanks!)
- Grand Canyon Geology, 2nd Edition. This is the leading geological work on the Canyon and it has a chapter on the side canyons that we're especially interested in, including Nautiloid Canyon, to use in further researching our evidence for a young earth (from rapid canyon formation) from both the side canyons and from the nautiloid fossils.
- The National Geographic Magazine issue from October 1953 on Carlsbad Caverns (to scan the article describing the relatively rapid preservation by a stalagmite of the form of a dead bat).
- Exodus Myth or History? by David Rohl (or the Rohl video set at our Amazon Wish List)
- King James Version Bible, Red Letter Old Testament Edition This is valuable for our verse-by-verse study of the Book of Leviticus for a particular lesson early in 2018.
