I have been blessed to have blog posts published at three different websites in the past couple of days. Yesterday, I posted my weekly contribution for Between the Times. The post, titled “Sanctification is a Community Project,” is a substantially revised version of a post I originally published on my personal blog. I discuss the role that the church has played in my own spiritual growth and touch upon the corporate nature of sanctification.
I periodically contribute to Historia Ecclesiastica, the blog of the Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies. I serve as a fellow for the Fuller Center. For the past few months, I’ve been fairly negligent in my blog contributions. However, yesterday I published a post titled “Answering My Great Question about ‘The Great Question Answered.’” If you are interested in the nature of historical research–all sixteen of you–then you ought to check it out. I share my story of sleuthing the origins of a famous gospel tract written by Andrew Fuller in 1803.
Finally, I am delighted to announce that I am now contributing to Facts and Trends, a quarterly journal and companion website for Christian leaders that has been published by LifeWay Christian Resources for nearly sixty years. I will mostly be writing for their website on lessons that contemporary Christians can learn from church history. My first contribution was published today: “Prayer and Revival: Yesterday and Today.” In the post, I discuss the role that prayer played in the Teschen Revival of 1708 and the Businessman’s Revival of 1857.
