Many of my former Protestant friends wonder why I bother staying in the Protestant fold (you know who you are!). This is one of the reasons. The leadership in our region is taking a long look at the state of our churches, and actually proactively moving to address the problems. This is good work and, while I’m obviously “not your typical Baptist,” it’s work I feel compelled to support.
Central will be going through this book, Jesus Christ from Cover to Cover, at some point – I want to do some other ground work first (in the ideal world, I’d get people literated in the story before adding on the Messianic interpretive lense – but I know I don’t live in an ideal world).
