KfaW - Pulpit Magazine

King for a Week is an honor I bestow on blogs that I feel are making a valuable contribution to my faith and the faith of other believers…or sometimes just because I really like them. It is a way of introducing my readers to blogs that they may also find interesting and edifying. Every two weeks (or so. That is theoretical. Practically, I don’t get around to updating as often as I should and we’ve been know to have kings for a month or two!) I select a blog, link to it from my site, and add that site’s most recent headlines to my right sidebar. While this is really not much, I do feel that it allows me to encourage and support other bloggers while making the readers of this blog aware of other good sites.

This week’s King for a Week is Pulpit Magazine, the blog ministry of the Shepherd’s Fellowship. Once an online magazine published six times yearly, Pulpit has now assumed a more typical blog style and sees near-daily updates. John MacArthur serves as Editor-in-Chief and Phil Johnson as General Editor while Nathan Busenitz and Nathan Williams are editors and provide much of the content. Though much of John MacArthur’s contribution is adapted from his books, articles or sermons, he does post the occasional piece of original commentary. The site covers a wide variety of interesting theological topics and is always well worth the read, whether or not you are a “shepherd.” They post some excellent series many of which are drawn from the long, distinguished teaching ministry of Dr. MacArthur.

In the coming days (and/or weeks) you will be able to see the most recent headlines from this blog in the sidebar of my site. I hope you will make your way over to look around.
