Audio from the 2012 Band of Bloggers panel is now live and listenable. Justin Taylor, Collin Hansen, Tim Challies, and Timmy Brister all contributed wisdom to a diverse array of topics. I moderated the panel. We had a blast.
Here was the event’s central topic:
Six years ago, two movements began to gain significant traction–blogging and the young, restless, and reformed. Additionally, 2006 was the inauguration of the Band of Bloggers fellowship, and since that time God has brought gospel rental in many ways to evangelical life, including the development of organizations like Together for the Gospel and The Gospel Coalition, the upsurge of gospel literature in publishing houses, the growth of church planting and revitalization networks, and continued reformation in local churches. Throughout this period, the role of the internet, blogging, and advances in technology have played no small role. At the 2012 Band of Bloggers gathering, we will take a look back at the past six years and consider the impact–good and bad–of blogging and technology in the Young, Restless, and Reformed movement.
Apparently there’s been some dustup over the panel’s discussion of the Elephant Room. I’m not sure I see the point, but I’ll invite you to listen in and form your own opinion. I thought there were many helpful takeaways from the four panelists.
