one-point-one-million

Since Thursday I have been more busy than usual with ministry (visitations, denominational meeting and teachings).  That slowed down my internet presence the last few days.

But I want to write a post thanking the Lord for all he’s doing through the blog and also to thank all of you guys for reading, commenting, reblogging and sharing things from this blog with others.

ten-years-blogging-veritas-domain

Ten years ago today on September 22nd, 2006 three men got together and decided to form a blog that would defend and proclaim the faith in addition to providing good Christian resources in the area of theology, apologetics, the Bible and Christian worldview.

A lot has happened in those ten years.

In terms of statistics we hit a milestone of over a million views this year.  Somehow the last ten years we put out 2,744 Posts covering 1,939 Categories and 1,113 Tags.  But the statistics doesn’t tell us the whole story of what I praise God for.

Over at the Bible Thumping Wingnut program they just recently interviewed Christian blogger Fred Butler about many things and among them was the topic of Christians “Adult Coloring Books.”  Yeah, Adult coloring books.  “Christian” adult coloring books.

If you go over and look at the Christian Book Expo’s “Christian Bestsellers” list for March 2016 you will find that the top ten include books that aren’t necessarily strong on being biblical.  Sadly I would have expected that.  But how many of the top ten are coloring books?  There’s three among the top ten!

Here’s one picture I doubt we’ll see in Christian adult coloring books:

His wife of 32 years has recently passed away on November 23rd, 2015 after a battle with cancer.

Please pray for him and his family in this difficult time.  He’s been blogging about grief, the Lord and his wife on his blog.

amazon-reviews Nearly two months ago over at Triablogue Jason Engwer  wrote a post titled “Christians Should Be Posting More At Amazon” in which Jason explains why he will be more involved in book reviewing on Amazon as a Conservative Christian.  The last paragraph is worth quoting:

I’ve commented before about how Christians, political conservatives, and others with similar views need to be more active online. Amazon is another illustration of that need. It’s something I neglected for a long time. Late last year, I decided to become more active in posting reviews and comments at Amazon. I hope other Christians and others who hold similar views will do the same. I’m not just referring to posting positive comments about books we agree with. In some ways, it’s even more important that we be active in reviewing and commenting on what we disagree with.

And in the comment section I think Jason makes a good point that for those of us who blog should take into account of posting reviews on Amazon:

People are often concerned about building an audience for something like a blog or Twitter account, and most of us never get many readers in that sort of context. But Amazon provides us with a free platform that already has a large audience. And Amazon is surely used by many people in academia, politics, and other contexts where we’d want to be influential. In terms of both quantity and quality of influence, there’s a lot of potential.

Another way Christians can contribute in their influence is following certain Christian reviewers who are helpful and voting when there’s a good review you appreciate.  It seems that when one posts a critical review on a controversial books you always have those who are trolling to automatically down vote another perspective. As a result of that posts I’ve been thinking about posting our book reviews there on Amazon and want to encourage other Christians to do the same as a Christian influence upon people’s perspective of what they take in in terms of book reading.

Here’s my profile page.

I’m a late starter in this area and book reviews I post here will also appear on Amazon.  Double the presence with the same review. I’ll also begin the slow process of putting up older reviews I have onto Amazon as well.  As of right now we have 112 reviews and I plan by mid-April to posts up 270 plus book reviews on there. I also know that some of the readers on here have already been doing this for years now or some are just getting started.  If you already have a presence on Amazon what is the link to your profile page?
