Top Posts in 2015

Thanks readers for spending time exploring theology with me on the blog. I hope it helped you in your walk and worship!

This year I was able to publish 53 posts. I was pretty excited about keeping up with the goal of averaging a post a week. Part of the year was spent blogging through the new book Grace for All, which is a good collection of essays exploring theology from an Arminian point of view. I was happy to have 9 posts published on the Society of Evangelical Arminian site.
