Si Deus vult … non flumen inundans


The Baptist Blogger has been typing with the speed of ten thousand Arabian horses and/or one frog: emails, letters, chapter outlines, transcriptions, essays, diaries, on top of our client work. Nevertheless, as best we are able, we will publish the following over the course of the next week:

  1. Reflections on a visit to the campus of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
  2. The contents of these packages (within 24 hours of their confirmed delivery)

  4. What we can learn from Dr. Wayne Ward about family, faith, and freedom
  5. A letter to the Council on Seminary Presidents
