Dwight McKissic’s blog….and some weekend reading.

Be sure and take note of Pastor Dwight McKissic’s new blog, found here, and the sermon by Fort Worth area pastor Todd Pylant of Benbrook Baptist Church. Rev. Pylant has been serving at Benbrook for several years, having succeeded the interim pastorate of Dr. David Crutchley.

Crutchley, you’ll remember, served as the Dean of Theology at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary under the appointment of President Ken Hemphill. After Hemphill chose to reassign Crutchley, the former dean continued to serve as an esteemed professor of New Testament until Patterson forced his resignation two years ago. Today Crutchley serves as a professor of religion at Carson Newman College in Jefferson City, TN.

  1. I read the whole thread of aarticles. I’m going to have to ask CB about all that stuff Monday. Something tells me it’ll be a lot better than most of Robert Ludlum’s stuff.
