Book Both "Together" Conferences NOW

I can't offer two conferences for the price of one, but I can—in one post—discuss two conferences which, for all the similarities of their names, do have some important differences.

BLOGSPOTTING – Wayne Grudem Edition

Well, Dr Grudem seems to have created quite a stir - most of it can be found in my comment section, but in appreciation for all those who have been linking, I figured I would rustle up a good old-fashioned blogspotting post. Just my way of saying "thank you," and giving a shout out to some of these poeple . . . The interview returns soon - just thought I would give a bit more of a pause for people to finish digesting last week's installments. (OK, truth be told, I want this to run most of the … [Read more...]
