Before I start my comments about Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics, let me explain how I chose my domain name. For several years I have used the name “Bill DeQuill” as a pen name. I chose it because it is both intentionally pretentious and descriptive. Of course it roughly means Bill of the quill (the old writing instrument made of a feather). I know that in Spanish and perhaps other languages the little word “de” means “of” and it is a separate word. I purposely chose to make it part of the name to show that I’m an English speaker who is not well acquainted with Spanish. I also chose this name because it rhymes. Another reason I chose this name is that it is unique. If you do a Google search for this name, the only reference you will find is to my Twitter account. Nobody else has this silly name. Since the name is unique, I was able to use it for my domain name which is now officially registered.
So Bill DeQuill means Bill the Writer. I intend to use this website/blog to write about many things that interest me. I hope that what I write will be of interest to you as well. My first writing project will be comments about the massive, fourteen volume Church Dogmatics by Karl Barth. In the near future I will begin that project. So I hope you will return to my site and interact with me as much as you want.
