Challies Dot Com Update

Since it is the Christmas season, I will be easing off on writing for the next few days. I intend to spend my vacation primarily engaged in reading, writing, talking and eating. I will also be drinking copious amounts of Coke.

Here are some of the things I am working on for 2004:

  • Continuing my Basic Christianity series. I am receiving some nice feedback about it and am enjoying researching and writing it. That will be an ongoing project.
  • I hope to write a very detailed, in-depth study of Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Church. My site receives the bulk of its traffic via Google searches for Warren and The Purpose Driven Life so I may as well continue writing about him! He is, after all, one of the most influential people in the Christian world.
  • Weekly look at other blogs. I want to post about some of the other blogs that can be found on the Net. I want to feature a few of them and then provide updates about what the authors are writing about.
  • Lots of book reviews. I have plenty of books in my “to read” pile and there are several book-shaped gifts with my name on them under the tree. I will be reading and reviewing those as well as some others I have borrowed from the bookshelves of various friends and relatives.

Other than that, I am not sure what the future of this site holds. I am hoping to continue to update the site on a daily basis.
