SBC Today Publisher
SBC Today is in our twelfth year, including four years under the leadership of Connect 316. As our Publisher, I am profoundly grateful for the superb work of our Editor, Dr. Kyle Gulledge. He is a strong conservative and a faithful Southern Baptist who provides excellent editorial leadership for our news and opinion blog. A study of our most recent fifty articles reveals the breadth of content we seek to provide here at SBC Today.
These stories are designed to bless you and challenge you in your walk with the Lord. Our most prolific devotional writer is Walker Moore of Awe Star Ministries. Others include a team of writers we republish from blogs like Theological Matters hosted by Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
These articles relate to the practical matters of Christian ministry, providing suggestions for greater effectiveness. Writers of this genre include Bill Harrell and Kara Barnette, among others.
These essays concentrate on various issues related to biblical, historical and systematic theology. Admittedly, we concentrate heavily upon soteriological concerns, primarily because it is the issue du jour in SBC life. Writers specializing in this topic include Leighton Flowers and Ronnie Rogers.
Coverage of denominational controversy is difficult to come by in Baptist Press or state Baptist newspapers. We allow writers and commenters to express their concerns rather freely. As our disclaimer indicates, we do not endorse every article or comment, but we do feel that a free press and an open exchange of ideas reveals truth and exposes Southern Baptists to a broader range of opinions than the religious press allows. Writers in this genre include yours truly and Thomas Littleton.
Whether the topic is alcohol abuse, transgender issues, or other ethical considerations Christians face today, we seek to explore these matters from the worldview of a biblical conservative. Writers include David Brumbelow and Braxton Hunter.
We can learn a great deal by looking at historical figures and even reading memorial tributes of those who have served the SBC and the cause of Christ with great distinction. Writers in this genre include Ron Hale and Tim Guthrie.
We solicit feedback because we sincerely want to offer you the kind of stories you wish to read—stories to inform, inspire, and challenge fellow Southern Baptists. Please review our research here and let us know how we may better serve you in the days ahead.
