I started working on a series of Best Youth Ministry Books and then sort of dropped the ball. I’m going to pick it back up, but do it a little differently than originally planned. At first, I thought I’d go through chapter-by-chapter and sort of summarize each chapter of these books. Well, there are three […]
It’s been 8 days since my last post. There’s been a few reason’s why I haven’t been posting lately: I was accepted to Luther Seminary and have been working on doing some of the things I have to do to get ready for that. It’s amazing the amount of software they want you to have […]
Over at Life in Student Ministry, Tim Schmoyer has a post on “100 blog topics I hope YOU to write.” Well, I’m done. I have tried to answer every topic with one (different) word.

They have kept a seven-year running tally of offenses: Go here for an introduction. Go here for the full release on Slice of Laodicea. Have […]
I was listening to the recent Youth Specialties Podcast with Tony Jones and heard a quote from Tony that is quite encouraging. According to Tony, the average article in a scholarly academic journal gets read by four people. Four. I guess my blog traffic is in “distinguished” company.
Benny Hinn got a new airplane. And he needs YOU to help cover the $6 million down payment! HT: Tim Challies
I know, I couldn’t believe it either! But he’s definitely treading very closely to postmodern hermeneutics with this post. (For those who don’t know, Dr. Mohler is the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, has his own radio show, and chairs or is the president of 847 committees and organizations. He also speaks a million […]
Since we are experiencing a little winter storm here in DFW, I thought I would offer a public service announcement: If anyone happens to be watching WFAA’s news and weather coverage today, the traffic lady has been saying over and over to leave plenty of room between you and the car in front of you: […]
