Thank you to everyone who has made this project possible. To Dennis Northington for his valuable insight and permission to repurpose some of his amazing findings. To Carolyn Majoran, Derek McLaughlin, Mike Lee, and Dave Morris for your help in editing. To Mario Ngabwe and Bill Gibbison for some thought-provoking conversations about light. To Sunder Krishnan for encouraging me to proceed with the book and stay focused on Scripture, despite not having a clear path forward. All glory goes to God; all I have is His, and this project simply points back to Him. For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. (1 Timothy 6:7) For if anyone thinks he is something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. (Galatians 6:3)
Please note that I have intentionally emphasized certain passages through the use of italics, underlining, and/or bolding. Additionally, I have capitalized the word, Light when I believe the text is specifically referencing God.
