Tim and John

Recently I had the pleasure of spending several hours with my blogging mentor, Tim Challies. He doesn't know that he's my mentor but he certainly has taught me a lot about blogging. Check out his link on the right side of this site.

I always enjoy Tim's perspective on issues. He is a godly, young man who writes well concerning the matters that the evangelical church grapples with.

I'm looking forward to his first book which should be in the bookstores in early January. He has written on The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment. Having met Tim and having read his comments, I know this book will address the topic well.

John MacArthur must think so as well. Here's the endorsement he has given Tim and his forthcoming book:

"Tim Challies is uniquely qualified to write on the subject. I don’t know of a more reliable or more prolific commentator on the contemporary evangelical scene. His weblog is a favorite stop for thousands of Christian readers every day. His book reviews and his comments on evangelical trends are consistently even-handed, thorough yet succinct, and full of perceptive insights... The Discipline of Spiritual Discernment is a truly important work--one that should be required reading not only for church leaders, but for all sober-minded laypeople as well. "

  1. Dear David...We know that he is your mentor and a very good one he is because you always have something good to give to us from him.
    His name means, "honoring God".
    He can't go wrong with a name like that!...from Terry
