Greetings, readers. My apologies, but I have let this blog slowly die. I swore that I would not do so, but the birth of Sophia, my Ph.D. work, and various ministry opportunities have all (rightly) pushed my attention elsewhere. I am back, though, and I have new content with me. I hope to offer a new post each Friday morning.
Though I have not posted recently on this site, I am grateful for the opportunities that I have received to contribute to other blogs. I provide links below if you are interested.
- The Center for Baptist Renewal published a bibliography on Baptist catholicity that I composed for them: http://www.centerforbaptistrenewal.com/blog/2017/5/15/baptist-catholicity-a-reading-list
- My short piece on John Gill’s use of the rule of faith also appeared on the Center for Baptist Renewal website: http://www.centerforbaptistrenewal.com/blog/2017/7/13/john-gill-the-rule-of-faith-and-baptist-catholicity
- The seminary from which I graduated, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, featured a profile of our family on its alumni blog: https://alumnise.com/alumni-blog/david-rathel/
- Somehow a summary of my recent Baptist Quarterly article on John Gill’s theological identity ended up on a website devoted to the study of Reformed theology. I do not know the site’s manager, but I am grateful that he or she found my work interesting. http://theologicalmeditations.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/david-mark-rathels-critique-of-tom.html
- I continue to manage Rounel, the academic blog of St. Mary’s College. Do give us a look; I am excited that quality people have made contributions to our site: https://theology.wp.st-andrews.ac.uk/roundel/
