• First, I have to say congratulations to one of my favorite bloggists, Real Live Preacher for his book deal with Eerdman’s publishing. I’ve been a fan of RLP for some time now so I’m glad to hear he has hooked with Eerdman’s (an excellent publishing house that puts out some great theological/religious books that tend to have a serious/scholarly tone without being too stuffy)
  • Second, I want to say a shoutout to my friend Serena (a very dedicated OK-IMCer and general progressive activist) as she debuts her new blog Awe Contraire.
