Hugh Hewitt's New Blog
Hugh Hewitt, a blogger, radio talk-show host, law professor and author (Blog, If It's Not Close, They Can't Cheat and In, But Not Of), has started a new blog experiment called OneTrueGodBlog.
On Monday, he posted this announcement on his regular blog: . . .
At OneTrueGodBlog, I have enlisted the help of five scholars from a diverse set of theological backgrounds to participate in a conversation about a variety of topics related to God and the modern world. I'll try and be the voice of the curious layman asking curious layman questions. . . .
I am also looking for a liberal Christian theologian who is already an accomplished blogger to join the team. But warn them to review the credentials of their potential colleagues in the online scrum. The use of lousy argument from a pulpit is rarely challenged. In this group, it isn't likely to survive contact with the crowd.
His panel currently consists of Albert Mohler, president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; John Mark Reynolds, the founder and director of the Torrey Honors Institute and associate professor of philosophy at Biola University; Mark D. Roberts, senior pastor of Irvine Presbyterian Church in Irvine, California; Amy Welborn, author of A Catholic Woman's Book of Days and De-coding Da Vinci: The Facts Behind the Fiction of The Da Vinci Code; and David Allen White, a professor of world literature at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, who has given literature seminars at St. Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, Minnesota.
Here is Hewitt's first topic and questions:
Subject one: The Exorcism of Emily Rose is a movie about demon possession. Millions of Americans --the majority of them young adults-- have seen this movie.
Questions: Do you believe in demons? Why? What should be the attitude of a mature Christian believer on the subject?
