As regular visitors to this blog know, the Reformed Baptist Thinker blog has laid dormant for several months. Why? Simple. I am now spending my time regularly posting to a new blog: the ACFAR Blog. This weekend, I have finally decided to officially close this blog.
But don't worry! You will still find me over at the ACFAR Blog! So don't forget to subscribe to my new blog in your feed reader. If that sounds too complicated, you can simply sign up to have my blog posts sent to you by e-mail. And for those bloggers out there that have included me in your blogrolls, please consider updating your link to my new blog.
I appreciate the many readers and visitors that have been a part of my first blog. The Reformed Baptist Thinker has definitely been a learning experience! Thank you again for your encouragement and support. Now let us glorify Christ through defending His truth in East Africa!
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!

To celebrate ACFAR's expanded presence online, I am asking all bloggers to join me in promoting the web site together on Monday, December 3rd. After checking out the site, please consider posting an entry on your blog with a link to ACFAR. Your post can be about whatever you like: the need for apologetics worldwide, a summary of ACFAR's plans, your interests in East Africa, etc. Be creative (and if you need help, don't be afraid to ask)! The goal is to help others discover a ministry in Uganda that seeks to glorify Christ through defending His truth.
At the same time, by getting involved with raising awareness, you will be entered into a random drawing for a free autographed copy of Tim Challies' new book The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment (sent to the winner as soon as it is released). Additionally, your blog will be featured here as a friend of the Africa Center for Apologetics Research.
So what are you waiting for? Start making plans now! And if you plan on joining, please let me know with a comment on this post. Your comment will be your ticket for the drawing. To help you out some more, below are a couple of graphics that you can use in your blog post. I look forward to seeing what God can accomplish through us!
