David Platt has been selected as the new president of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention.
I find it important to highlight this breaking news because of the strategic importance of the IMB and because of my respect for David Platt.
If you don’t know about David or the IMB, let me give a brief introduction of my own and then share a few resources to help you get to know the man and the mission.
…if you’ve got money to waste. My family doesn’t really have that problem. 😉
We live in New York City but I’m not too worried about my kids being spoiled. We’re more Madison, WI kind of spenders.

I’m going to take my family to the grandparents house today. My wife made an amazing red, white, and blue trifle. There’s a parade in our town and we might just pull out the mini pool.
It will be a full but fun day.
What will you be doing for Memorial Day? Who will you be remembering?
I thought I’d take a minute to thank you for reading, commenting, and sharing my blog posts in 2011!
As a way of showing my appreciation, I’d like to give one of my readers a new NIV Archaeological Study Bible from Zondervan. I’ll explain how you can get a copy below.
But first, here are my top 11 posts from 2011:
- Making Disciple-Making Disciples – “Sermons, seminars, and classes need to be extra-curricular to the more risky and time consuming core curriculum of modeling a transformed life in front of others.”
- Bible Translations, Tools and Tech for the 21st Century: HCSB – “After 2,000 years of church history we have never been more advanced technologically nor have we ever had more ancient manuscripts and a better understanding of the ancient world than we do now. My view is that the Holman Christian Standard Bible does the best job (not perfect job) of utilizing all of these new innovations and ancient manuscripts to give us the most trustworthy English translation yet.”
