Bi-Racial Dilemmas

     δί-λημμα, that's Dilemma in Greek...Actually it is a Greek word meaning there is a problem with two solutions--neither of which is acceptable.  A "double preposition".  Today my mother reached for a Bible at church and she then realized that before her were: a Korean Bible (쉬운성경) and a Spanish Bible (Santa Biblia), neither of which make any sense to her.  


Fortunately for us we can understand them.  My mother?  Well, she was simply out of luck today.


Thanks to Wikipedia for providing me with useful information.

    sildude, I too use it incorrectly and didn't realize it until I looked this up. Then I felt a little dumb :)

  4. Perhaps I should bring my own Bible and I would not have these problems but then I would have robbed you of your opportunity to blog!
