Did you know that? Of course he was. He was baptized by a Baptist, right?
Back during the first quarter of the year I was offered the opportunity to write this book for an Episcopal publishing house. I jumped at the opportunity because it was a paid writing opportunity (one of my goals this year) and because it gave me an opportunity to return to my roots as a Baptist and explore our distinctives anew.
What is this book about? The publisher is doing a whole series of books trying to re-introduce denominations to a new generation. The first book was Jesus was an Episcopal. I’m doing the Baptist version and there are Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic, and other denominations that are or will be written.
The book’s style will be similar to Seth Godin’s writing style. Shorter chapters. One sentence paragraphs. The kind of stuff I learned when I was in high school and college in the 1980’s & 1990’s, when I did my master’s degree, and the kind of writing found in EVERY dissertation.
This has been a huge challenge for me.
