Blogs I Read Revisited

Way back in 2009--an eternity in Internet years--I did a brief blog post about the blogs I read on a regular basis. I took a look at it today. It's time for a new list. Interests change, people change, and the blog world moves onward. So, here are some blogs I read, categorized a little bit.

First, there is the one blog that I don't skip: www.annhibbard.com. I know, she's my wife. I also like how she writes and what she writes. She also is the main one to keep up www.thehibbardfamily.com, though I am supposed to be doing a little better at adding on to it as well.

Second, Ann works for the Home Educating Family Association. Their website is at www.hedua.com. At some point, the section labeled "Blog" may move, but for now, that's a generally good resource for homeschool stuff. In with the education blogs goes http://blog.drwile.com/, where Dr. Jay Wile posts fairly frequently on matters of science and education. Rounding out education, I'd put Dr. Robert T. McKenzie's blog at https://faithandamericanhistory.wordpress.com/ for matters of history and historical process. 

Over in the theology area (I am still a Baptist preacher) things have changed a bit. We moved about 18 months after the last update, and I don't keep track with quite as many of the preachers that I used to. Plus, there have been retirements and shifts in the broader world. I'm on-again, off-again with reading at SBCVoices. I still keep up with the Pyromaniacs Blog, though it's slimmed down some in recent years. Ann and I consistently enjoy Mortification of Spin, even if they do mock Baptists at times. Beyond these, I'm looking for some additional theology/Biblical Studies blogs to read semi-regularly. I do read Canon Fodder by Michael Kruger, Pajama Pages and a few other "look harder and check on your actions" types of blogs, but not every day.

In the writing and business arena, I've started tracking a couple of new folks. First is Steven Pressfield. Books and blog, I'm enjoying what he and his team are putting out there. Also, Shawn Coyne's work has caught my eye in writing. Overall, both Jeff Goins and Jonathan Milligan have good blogs. Milligan's blog is kind of fragmented across a couple of spaces, but it all comes from there. Of course, you won't go too far wrong with Michael Nichols and Michael Hyatt.

A lot of the friends that used to blog have kind of slid off into Facebook and Instagram, so there's not as much of that anymore to post. All in all, blogging has changed a good deal in recent years. Or at least it's changed in my dynamic. But these are the things that fill my Feedly.com reader...

Well, and of course www.altonbrown.com. Can't miss the food blog!

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
