Worth reading: anti-itch meditation

One of the consequences of not chasing after The Latest Great Blog Post on this weblog is that I hope to spend more time recommending the blogs I've found most edifying so that you can read them yourself.

The first is anti-itch meditation, the writings of Jeff Weddle. Jeff has so much going for him as a blogger that it's hard to know where to begin. He has a gift for zeroing-in on important points of faith, doctrine, and discipleship that most of the rest of us seem to overlook. And, he has a delightfully succinct and ironic way of sharing those insights. Jeff also has the courage to look at the Bible and to see what it actually says, rather than what we wish it would say or what his particular interpretive tradition insists it says.

One indication that Jeff may really be on to something is that he can't get a break with the world. For example, he recently got a book contract shortly before his publisher (me) went out of business. But I'm certainly not recommending Jeff's blog out of guilt about publishing his book; I published his book because I really, really like what he writes on his blog. If you're ready for a straight-up shot of truth, I think you will, too.
