Here's a (now long overdue) guide to my long overdue blogroll update.
I added two more of the Shay clan's blogs, Journeys with Sancho Panza and Bug Blaster (should that be one word or two, Buggy?). Journeys is Kim Shay's reading blog, and Buggy is Kim's husband. The Bugman's posts on Leviticus are exquisite. I recommend starting with this one--I especially liked the last four paragraphs. He is also into politics, and has some interesting comments in that regard.
Daniel Calle: my first español link. If you're Reformed & know Spanish, you'll love his posts. Otherwise, well, you'll just have to read them and see.
Rebecca Writes: Have you ever read about someone or something and it's all gushing praise, and you think to yourself "nothing could be that good," but then you check it out for yourself, and sure enough, it is. That's Rebecca. Everything good you've heard is true, and more. She's been very kind to me on more than one occasion, and I've repaid it by not linking to her until now, and being slow on mailing my part the prize for her Out of Canada Christian Blog Showcase. I still don't know if she's received it, but I keep checking her site to see if I've been delinked.
Tim Irvins: A guy from Arkansas who plays chess? How have I missed him all this time?
Colin McGahey: Colin is in seminary in Austin (where I lived for two years before moving to Arkansas). I've seen some of his comments in various places, and we had an interesting discussion on whether traditional seminary was the right model.
Pyromaniacs: Phil Johnson and friends. 'Nuff said. (The old Pyromaniac site is now "Pyro Archives")
Charles Sebold: perhaps the one I'm most excited about. Charlie is a JBU alum, and it took a bit of time for me to remember him (that's not his fault--my memory is like a spagetti strainer). Turns out he's been linking to me for awhile, and mentioning me in posts, but Blogger search doesn't pick it up (Technorati does, but I hardly ever use that one. Hmm. . .)
Anyway, if you've never read him before, get a box of tissues, and start here, follow with this, and finally this. Once you're done crying, read the rest of his testimony. He once described it as the ultimate "where I am now" post, but I don't think so. As I read this, I was reminded of Jesus saying that the sinner who is forgiven the most loves the most. When you read Charlie's work, his love for his savior is evident, because he never forgets what he was saved from.
