I am very excited to introduce to you Michael Svigel, Assistant Professor of Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary (B.S., Philadelphia Biblical University, 1996; Th.M., Dallas Theological Seminary, 2001; Ph.D., 2008). I have known Michael for over a decade (we graduated the same year) and we have become better acquainted over the last couple of years. He is just the kind of thinker that the church needs today. He is serious and lighthearted. Balanced and focused. Academic and pastoral. And ancient and future. He shares the same love and hope that I do for Evangelicalism. He is one of those rare people who can sympathize with the ethos of all things “post-“, but offer solutions for the Evangelical church with gentleness and love, without looking for an opt-out.
I can’t recommend enough his new book from Crossway Retro Christianity: Reclaiming the Forgotten Faith. Evangelicals need to read this book. Get this book and consume.
I have twisted Michael’s arm for long enough. He read my last blog about fighting and got scared. So he decided to send in his first series of blog posts. I hope you enjoy these over the next couple of weeks.
