I think that Michael Spencer (imonk) has put together an excellent podcast series called Coffee Cup Apologetics. From what I have listened to on the podcast and read on the blog, Michael seems to be very balanced and thoughtful. I thought that I would point you in this direction if you have not heard him before. His weekly show called Internet Monk Radio is a blogcast (blog in a podcast) and is excellent. I listen to it just about every week. The Coffee Cup Apologetics is focused on apologetic issues of the day.

Today’s podcast is called Five Limitations of Apologetics. It is a good one to get your feet wet with the imonk. The imonk is well worth your time.

      I’ll trust you Michael and give it a try. His bio does sound awfully
      “emergent” though

      “Internet Monk is the personal web space of Michael Spencer. Michael is a missional thinker, communicator and writer living in southeastern Kentucky. “I am deconstructing and moving past my evangelicalism; rediscovering what it means to be vitally connected to Jesus. That process is always worth sharing.”

      but I won’t prejudge 🙂

      Chad, you know you are emergent. Have you listened to the emergent series on TUP? I don’t think Michael goes by emergent (or emerging), but I think he does, like me, identify with some of the concerns. He will have to speak to this issue though.

      Tried it out, so far it seem quite good

      He had a very important post on The Denominational Church by Alistair Roberts. I was impressed

      Good. He is quite a good thinker. Like I said, I don’t read too many blogs except for a glance, but I usually read everything he puts up.
