New Blog – Between the Times

June 6, 2008

Let me make you aware of a new blog hitting cyberspace. Between the Times is a blog that focuses on a number of topics including theology, culture, mission, the SBC, and book reviews. The first post is already up by Bruce Ashford called “Toward a Great Commission Resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention: Part One.”

This blog has as its contributor’s five professors at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Theses are: Dr. Daniel L. Akin, President of SEBTS where he teaches courses in theology, preaching, and hermeneutics, Dr. Bruce R. Ashford, director of the Lewis A. Drummond Center for Great Commission Studies and Associate Professor of Philosophy and Intercultural studies at SEBTS, my good friend Dr. Nathan A. Finn, Assistant Professor of Church History at SEBTS (see his great personal blog here), Dr. Kenneth Keathley, Dean of Graduate Studies and Professor of Theology at SEBTS, and Dr. David P. Nelson, Senior Vice President for Academic Administration and Dean of the Faculty at SEBTS where he teaches courses in systematic theology and worship.

This looks to be an exciting helpful contribution to the blog world. I know one of these men personally, and I have met two of the others, and know one by reputation and am convinced of their love for God, the church, and especially as it is manifested in the SBC. I am sure that this will be an encouraging and challenging addition to discussion, particularly discussion in the SBC context. Check out it regularly! I highly recommend it!
