Face Off: Faithbook vs Facebook

Whether it is a good thing or not, that is not at issue here. Yet, every now and again Christians go and make copies of what already exists. It is reminiscent of the days that the Japanese would take existing technology and come out with their own--hopefully improved--versions.

In this case, it seems that Facebook was copied and now we have Faithbook. I am on Facebook and sometimes I wonder about also having a profile at Faithbook. So, I decided, "what the heck!" and created a profile on Faithbook for myself. Currently, it only has 917 members of which I am number 917!

My first thought when I saw it was, "Why are Christians always running somewhere to form their own little huddle?" But, what is interesting about Faithbook, is that it has one very famous member amongst its ranks. None other than the infamous atheist, Richard Dawkins. Of course, I can't verify that this is really that Richard Dawkins.

Obviously, being fairly new, Faithbook still has a long way to go before it can actually look better and have better apps than Facebook.

Anyway, check it out! You may just like it.

Who knows, maybe there is a place for something like Faithbook.

Phil Johnson reviews "Why We're Not Emergent"

Well, here is a book I am going to buy! After reading Phil Johnson's review of Kevin DeYoung's and Ted Kluck's Why We're Not Emergent: By Two Guys Who Should Be, (available at Amazon and Kalahari), I will be getting this one.

Here is a short excerpt:
"In fact, I think I said wow at least once in every chapter of this book. No matter how little or how much you know about postmodernism and the emerging church, you will find this book informative and thought-provoking. I'm pretty sure I have read more material on both sides of this issue and spent more hours thinking critically about it than the average evangelical lay person. But I found myself repeatedly being challenged with new facts, fresh ideas, and arguments I hadn't considered before. I gained a clearer perspective even on some of the very aspects of Emergent thought that are most familiar to me.

"The book rings all the right notes, at just the right tempo."
