Another great article from Montgomery, Alabama

When I read this thoughtful, careful, encouraging article on understanding justification and sanctification and discovered it came from Montgomery, Alabama, I assumed it must have been the author of the stimulating article on creation and evolution.

But, it turns out that this city has at least two good writers and thinkers.

The first article was by Alan Cross, of Gateway Baptist Church, who blogs at Downshore Drift

The second was by Tom Hicks, pastor at Morningview Baptist Church.

The Wee Flea

Have you come across David Robertson? I'm not referring to the new chief conductor of The Sydney Symphony Orchestra, but to a Scots Presbyterian gentleman who writes very wisely.

I appreciate his review of Engaging with Keller.

And I am greatly awed by his patience, persistence and faithfulness in his interactions with angry atheists, which has resulted in at least a few people coming to faith in Christ.
