In any case, I am excited about a new way that you can participate in our East African ministry. I have established the ACFAR Network, a community of evangelical Christians that will work together toward making a difference in Uganda and throughout the region. We will begin by reading through The New Faces of Christianity: Believing the Bible in the Global South by Philip Jenkins. Starting in January, the ACFAR Network will read and discuss one chapter a week for two months.
Want to learn more? Even better, would you like to join? Read more about our new group and sign-up here. I look forward to reading and interacting with you!
Today is the day that I have set aside for people to get to know my ministry, the Africa Center for Apologetics Research (ACFAR). The web site has lots of information as well as some new features, including a page of endorsements, a blog, and the ability to donate online. Be sure to check it out!
If you are a fellow blogger and would like to join in the fun, you can easily promote ACFAR on your blog too! Simply check out last week's post "Spread the Vision!" for the guidelines. And don't forget: one random blogger will win a free autographed copy of Tim Challies' new book The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment (sent to the winner as soon as it is released).
Please remember to add yourself and your ACFAR blog post to the list at the "Welcome to the ACFAR Blog!" page. It will be your ticket for the drawing. Thank you in advance for being a friend of the Africa Center for Apologetics Research!
So what? You may ask. Well, I was also critical of some of the comments in Bowman's entries posted by Craig Blomberg and Paul Owen. Much to my surprise, Dr. Blomberg commented on my blog! Today, I posted a response. Again, Blomberg commented.
But I'm not simply trying to get you to read a he-said-he-responded dialogue. I believe our interaction was both informative and gracious. What do you think?
Lord willing, I hope for more of this kind of conversation at the recently launched ACFAR blog. You're welcome to join us!
