It always seems to me when a new semester of classes begins, the months roll on by like a kid’s summer break. Time really does fly when you’re having fun. It also flies by when you spend hours upon hours putting pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, as it were. I wrote more frequently in the month of August than I have in the past. Lord willing, I will continue this trend. Evan also contributed a few meaningful posts this month. I know his Throwback Thursday posts will continue to be a blessing. Evan also plans to write more frequently in the coming months. As a reflection on the month of August, I have included below the five most viewed posts from the month we have left behind. Check them out and feel free to interact by commenting on the posts.
In this post, I reflect on David Platt’s election as president of the IMB and why this is a very good thing for Southern Baptists and the kingdom.
Here I argue that there is one question every congregation is faced with when they gather for worship.
In this post, Evan Knies provides great insight into John Owen, his thoughts on the importance of seeing the glory of Christ, and why that matters for Christians today.
This was the last post of August, but it gained excellent intrigue and feedback. I examine the reality of preaching the sermons of others and the ethics behind such actions.
This was the most popular book review from August. I reviewed James E. White’s newest book in early August. Check it out here and then buy the book!
