Mohler weblog to comment on issues as they arise
August 18, 2003

A new weblog at Crosswalk.com features regular analysis of theological, ethical and cultural issues from R. Albert Mohler Jr., president of Southern Seminary.
The weblog, or “blog” in Internet-ese, allows Mohler to engage issues immediately as they arise during the course of a day. Mohler, who regularly appears on TV, radio and in print, said the weblog is a particularly valuable forum because it offers the opportunity for immediate response to breaking issues.
The weblog can be accessed at http://mohler.crosswalk.com.
“Those who know me know that the issues that really concern me are theology, the great ethical issues of the day, the intersection of Christianity and culture and the responsibility of Christians to develop a Christian worldview,” Mohler said. “We are living in a fast-paced society in which response really can’t wait days, weeks or even 24 hours. That is what makes the blog an exciting way to communicate, analyze, think and even think out loud in print.”
Mohler plans to provide at least one major posting per day. Some days there will be multiple postings.
“It is an extension of my ministry in the media and in writing and in public speaking,” he said. “Through the blog, I can speak to people who I would otherwise never be able to reach.”
