Recently, my good friend, mentor, and sometime co-author, Dr. Boyd Luter, began a new blog, Agree to Disagree Agreeably, that aims to address the various sticky issues of the Southern Baptist Convention. If you have an interest in such things, I recommend Luter's blog to you as a place of deep, careful thinking and irenic conversation.
Luter is a graduate of Mississippi State University and holds the Th.M. and Ph.D. degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary. He has over 16 years of pastoral ministry experience, as well as 15 years experience teaching Bible and theology. I benefited greatly from his tutelage at Criswell College, but he has taught as an adjunct at both Golden Gate and Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminaries as well.
Luter has published eight books and 20 journal/periodical articles, in addition to contributing to a number of edited volumes on biblical and theological topics. My favorites of his books include Women as Christ's Disciples, co-authored with Kathy McReynolds, and God Behind the Seen: Expositions on the Books of Ruth and Esther, co-authored with Barry Davis.
Presently, Luter is Pastor of Comal Country Church in Canyon Lake, TX and Adjunct Professor of New Testament and Theology at Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. He is an occasional contributor to SBC Outpost, as well.
