Blog Tour Review: New Leaven
I haven’t been using this blog very well (i.e., at all), but starting today I will use it to provide links to the stops on the Holy Bible: Mosaic blog tour. The tour has been going strong for a few weeks now, so I’m not going to give you links to every post all at once. But each weekday I plan to point you to that day’s tour stop along with a review post pointing to one of the previous stops on the tour.
Today we will look back at yesterday’s stop on the tour at TC Robinson’s blog, New Leaven.
TC presented a Q & A session with me. Here is a taste:
5. What hopes do I have for Mosaic?
Three things I’m hoping to see from Mosaic, apart from the obvious hope that people will be able to connect with God through the Scriptures and have a meaningful devotional experience.
(1) I hope Mosaic will help some evangelicals who don’t know much about the church calendar to take a closer look at it and consider what it could do for their spiritual lives.
(2) I hope Mosaic will help Christians get a glimpse at how wide and how broad and how diverse the entire Church is, and remind them that our unity in Christ is far more basic than our differences in culture and theological expression.
(3) I hope Mosaic will nudge a few people to give the NLT a(nother) chance, and I doubly hope that those who think the NLT isn’t very scholarly will take a close look at the Hebrew/Greek word study system in the cross reference column.
Additionally, TC’s contest giving away a copy of Mosaic is still open, so head on over and throw your name in the hat if you haven’t already won a copy.
