Setting Up Shop

If you are under the age of 45 and haven’t picked up a copy of In, But Not Of: A Guide to Christian Ambition and the Desire to Influence the World, then stop reading this and go buy the book.
Hugh Hewitt’s latest book should be the vade mecum for any young Christian aspiring to a life of influence. The advice ranges from the obvious but often ignored (#36 – Be slow to show your knowledge) to the practical but often ignored (#9 – Tatoos: Don’t).
This blog was inspired by #32 (Start and maintain your own Web log (blog)). “At present,” Hewitt notes, “no great blogger has emerged with a distinctly evangelical worldview.” Point noted, Mr. Hewitt.
I’ll be here, holding down the fort, until such a blogger shows up.
