NWA08 – Final Audio Comments And Other Bloggers

I didn't get a chance to capture people's response to Hugh Palmers' talk as I had to drive through the night to get home so I could go to work today. So when I was about half-way home, when I needed a break, I pulled into a service station and recorded this. It covers my reaction to Hugh's talk, the week as a whole, and also explains a bit about just what a blog is for anyone who is new around here! You can download it here.There were a few other bloggers at the event. Pop over to the following … [Read more...]

The Conference Season is Upon Us

The 2008 conference season is upon us. If you haven't finalized your plans to attend conferences, you had better move quickly as many of them are set to sell out as they did last year.I will be attending two conferences, and will be live-blogging both of them. The first is a brand-new conference called New Word Alive. This runs from the 7th to the 11th of April. In addition to reporting on the sessions, I will be recording video interviews with John Piper, Don Carson, and Terry Virgo. If you … [Read more...]

My 3,000th Blog Post

3,000 posts—that’s some kind of milestone, I guess. It means that while I may not have been blogging for as many continuous days as Challies, I have been cranking out posts at an average rate of over 1.6 a day for almost five years despite my intermittent blog breaks. I thought that I would comment on the 1st Warnock Blog Entry, which appeared on April 16, 2003.Hi! This is Adrian Warnock here beginning his blog. Quite why I am starting today is anybody's guess, but I think it’s something to do wi … [Read more...]

Competition UPDATE

I have had a number of entries in my competition to guess what is the most popular post on my blog. Only one person has come up with the right answer, however, and it is not a blogger. So, I thought I'd give the rest of you a small clue, and 24 hours more to guess correctly. I can reveal that the post in question is about a Christian leader. Tomorrow I will announce the winners and reveal the most popular post. … [Read more...]

2nd Most Read Post – Blogging, Discernment, and a Book by Tim Challies

No. 2 on the list of most-read posts on this blog appeared on October 26, 2007. This post was an expression of some of my own concerns and frustrations about the blogging world I have come to love so much. I said some things I had been wanting to say for a long time, and it was not a great surprise that the aftermath of this post would lead me to disable comments on my blog a month later. Tim's book addresses discernment, which lies at the root of many of my issues with the Christian blogosphere … [Read more...]

3rd Most Read Post – The ESV: A Bible Translation for Everyone?

No. 3 on the list of most-read posts on this blog appeared on July 10, 2005 and represented the first in my series of interviews with Christian leaders. I had no idea back in 2005 where the blogging journey would lead me. An exclusive offer to interview the translators of what was then a little-known, new, apparently niche-appeal translation was simply too good to turn down. The folks at Crossway were kind enough to offer me this amazing opportunity, which I grabbed with both hands!For awhile, … [Read more...]
