Marc Cortez sent out this email a short while ago:

I am pleased and excited to announce the launch of a new blog from Western Seminary: Trans·formed | Living the Gospel in an Everyday World.

This blog is a resource from the faculty and friends of Western Seminary focused on “living the Gospel in an everyday world.” In other words, we’re here to help you think through the implications of the Gospel for leading God’s people in everyday life and ministry.

Our goal is to create relevant, insightful, Gospel-centered content that you can put to use in your ministry. If you are involved in Christian leadership in any capacity, then this blog is for you.

And, to celebrate the launch, we’re giving away a bunch of great books from people like Tim Keller, Michael Horton, Matt Mikalatos, and Tom Schreiner.

Although we’ll be posting articles from many of our faculty and friends, you can expect new content almost every day from one of our five core bloggers:

  • Bill Mounce specializes in Greek and biblical studies, with a strong emphasis on making the best of today’s scholarship available and understandable to everyday Christians.
  • Bev Hislop works with women around the world to sharpen their ministry skills and develop their ability to lead others in today’s world.
  • Chad Hall is a professional coach with a passion for helping people become godly leaders.
  • Marc Cortez writes about theology, culture, the Gospel, and anything else that he finds interesting.
  • John Johnson is the lead pastor at a local church who loves writing and thinking about pastoral theology and ministry.
So, come join the fun. We hope this will be a great resource for you, and we’re looking forward to your comments.
