Evangelicals Romp Over at First Things

Tweet Share

You can decide if it’s the Star Wars canteen scene or the opening theme to a Super Friends cartoon, but a team’s a team. A group of us evangelicals are launching a brand-new group effort today. First Things magazine launches the Evangel blog, featuring evangelical writers such as Joe Carter, Justin Taylor, and John Mark Reynolds. I’m glad to be a part.

The blog is set up to be a kind of casual back-and-forth, along the lines of National Review‘s “The Corner.” We start off with a conversation about the old nailbiter of evangelical identity. And my first blog post is why I don’t care about evangelical identity all that much.

This will be the place where I’ll do the vast majority of my blogging (along with the more often micro-bursts over on Twitter), but I’ll enjoy the banter with my friends over there often too. Check it out here.

The culture is changing but it can be good news for the church.
