Before I delve into the topic of this thread, I would like to share my thoughts on a couple of items that are currently on my mind.
First, I would like to state that many of the threads that I post here at AF have the express purpose of presenting 'another side' to topics that I am either currently studying, or have seen being expounded (and debated) upon at other online sites.
Second, I am amazed at just how many issues are being debated over and over again, with little (usually no) sign/s of learning and/or development that should be taking place if each 'side' would seriously reflect on what their opponents have presented previously (some sites being merely monologues, allowing no dialogue at all, or only from those who already agree with what is being discussed).
Now, the above is actually more of an introduction to an upcoming thread (the Lord willing) that will discuss a prime example of an issue that is being debated repeatedly on a number of internet sites, with pretty much NO development: sola fide.
But before I jump back into the fray, I wanted to share a couple of new sites (at least to me) that I happened upon earlier today.
The first site I would like to share with my readers is:
Credo - The Magazine
The purpose of the site and magazine is summed up in the following statement:
Credo magazine is self-consciously Evangelical, Reformational, and Baptistic: Evangelical since it aims at being supremely Gospel-centered, exalting in the substitutionary death and historical resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ; Reformational as the gospel it promotes is defined by the solas of the Reformation; and while Credo magazine welcomes contributors from diverse ecclesial backgrounds, it seeks to especially celebrate those doctrines that mark the Baptist tradition.

The first issue (and only issue to date), was published just last October. In addition to the magazine, the site also has a Blog, and Media page.
The second site/blog is:
The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies
This site revolves around Historia ecclesiastica - "The Weblog of Dr. Michael A. G. Haykin".
My personal interest in this site/blog is focused on the Dr. Haykin's "Ancient Church" series (see right side bar on the sites opening page for links). I am still in the process of reading through this series; much of what I have read, has been informative.
Anyway, I sincerely hope that some of my readers will find the above sites of use in their own studies.
Grace and peace,
