I’m not sure what I think about this. The article is certainly one-sided, but it does present a story that seems compelling on the surface. If anyone has greater insight into this situation, please comment and let us know what is happening.

Me and Lifeway

Posted by Alethes (Truthful) Baptist on July 3, 2006

I’m a sucker for books; always have been, always will be. I can never get out of a bookstore without buying something 90% of the time. For instance, take today as an example. I was at my local Lifeway Bookstore today and ran across a book that I couldn’t resist buying. Chad Brand and David Hankins have recently published One Sacred Effort: The Coorperative Program of the Southern Baptists (May 2006). While most would pass over such a book, never even considering whether to buy and read it, this was a no-brainer for me.

This book seems to be anything but irrelevant to the current ethos of the Southern Baptist Convention. These two authors have the capacity to speak knowledgably about this issue, so I look forward to their thoughts. It is not an overly-large book (214 pgs) with relatively easy content. I do not suspect to struggle with the concepts. There are twelve chapters as well as an introduction and conclusion. I suspect I will read and blog a review of one chapter every night. I might take a day or two off during the process, as time may not warrant such a consistent schedule. I hope you benefit from my review.
