Brethren in Christ Blogs to Bookmark

mouse-clickThe latest issue of In Part magazine follows up on its successful and insightful four-issue “We Believe” series by asking the question, “What Does It Mean to be Brethren in Christ?”

I’ll save reflections on the rest of the issue for a future post. Right now, I want to highlight the fact that The Search for Piety and Obedience made the issue’s list of “10 BIC Blogs to Bookmark.” Apparently, our “superb storytelling makes BIC history quite thrilling, actually.” Thanks, In Part!

That highlight might sound a little self-serving, so I want to make sure to mention the other excellent Brethren in Christ blogs being hyped in In Part‘s issue. Here’s how the magazine describes each one:

    I love Kurt Willem’s blog. Been following for a long time. Also check out David Flowers blog, The Centrality & Supremacy of Jesus Christ (, a more theologically centered anabaptist blog.

    I put Friar Tuck’s site in my favorite toolbar and will do my best to read it first thing when I open my laptop each am. That one jumped out at me, but I will check out the others as well.
