For any Reformed Baptist Blog readers who have not yet discovered Dr. Richard Belcher’s Journey Series of theological novels, I highly recommend checking them out here:
This series is a good one for all of you pastors to recommend to folks in your congregations. You may even want to consider getting them for your church library and encouraging the youth to read them. They do a great job of presenting solid doctrine — from a Reformed Baptist perspective — in an enjoyable, understandable, and practical way. And the continuing saga of the series’ primary character, Ira Pointer, is very engaging!
Dr. Belcher has informed me via email that he hopes to have his latest offering, A Journey in Evangelism and Missions, available by April 1 or perhaps a little earlier. It will address the false argument that “Calvinism kills evangelism and missions.” It should be a great weapon to add to your arsenal to help folks correctly understand that the Doctrines of Grace not only do not destroy zeal for evangelism and missions but that, properly understood, they provide a tremendous motivation to take the Gospel to the whole world. I am looking forward to reading it and will announce it here on the blog when it is available.
P.S. I have invited Dr. Belcher to contribute to the blog if he can. I know he is a very busy man, still traveling and writing a lot, so he may not be able to post here, but the invitation is always open!
