Reformation21 Blog

I wanted to make you aware of a new blog that you may just want to make part of your regular reading. Reformation21, the online magazine of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, has recently added a blog to their site. It will feature writing by such notables as Ligon Duncan (Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church), Derek Thomas (John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary), Philip Ryken (Senior Minister of Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadephia), Rick Phillips (Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church in Coral Springs/Margate, Florida)and Carl Trueman (Associate Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary). And Justin Taylor. Don’t feel bad, I haven’t heard of him either, though I’m sure he’s a nice guy. He must also be a brave guy to take on the role of being the sole Baptist among a group of Presbyterians!

You can find the blog here. And yes, they have an RSS feed. Here is something of their mission:

Joe Carter at the blog Evangelical Outpost recent wrote:

I think that theologians need to take advantage of the Internet and especially the blogosphere to fulfill their role of “informing the laity.” Journals are an excellent way for them to stay up on current thought but it needs to trickle down into the pews.

We agree—which is one of the reasons the Alliance is launching the Reformation 21 Blog. Alliance Council members Ligon Duncan (Senior Pastor, First Presbyterian Church), Derek Thomas (John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary), Philip Ryken (Senior Minister of Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadephia), Rick Phillips (Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church in Coral Springs/Margate, Florida)and Carl Trueman (Associate Professor of Church History and Historical Theology, Westminster Theological Seminary) will be among the contributors. Bookmark and return often. We hope you enjoy the blog.

    We are probably so accustomed to seeing bonsai trees that we don’t think much about them. But have you ever paused to consider how strange and freakish they really are?

    This week the blog is sponsored by Help The Persecuted. “Can I have a Bible?” The guard studied Qasem. “If you paint the walls of every cell in this prison, I’ll get you a Bible.” “Where is the paint?” And so Qasem, enduring what would ultimately be a three-year sentence for running house churches throughout…

    Why Didn’t You Tell Me?

    If you have spent any time at all on YouTube, you have probably seen videos of people hearing for the first time or people seeing color for the first time—videos of people who, through the miracles of modern science, have senses restored that had either been missing altogether or that had become dull through illness…
