hat with all the hectic preparations for the Shepherds' Conference, and especially the busyness of the week itself, I've had to stifle my blog-output. And I've been juggling a few short items in my mind that I keep meaning to blog about. Here they are all at once:

- Something Mark Dever said at the Shepherds' Conference this week reminded me of this guy, whom you ought to know:
That's Jay Smith, an American currently living in London. Jay was born in India, where his parents served as Brethren missionaries. He spends his Sunday afternoons at Speakers' Corner, Hyde Park, where Islamic radicals now more or less dominate. Jay's boldness is remarkable, and he's no mere rabble-rouser. He earned his Ph.D. in Islamic studies and employs that plus his winsome personality to confront the increasingly-violent rhetoric of radical Islam in a public and head-on way.
You should get to know Jay. Every time I have been in England for the past couple of years, people have been talking about him and his ministry at Speakers' Corner. Invariably the discussion includes some remark about Jay's life expectancy. He receives death threats on a regular basis. Keep him in your prayers.
Jay's web site is a little plain-looking, but full of helpful resources. His YouTube videos are collected here. Good stuff.
- Speaking of good stuff, bold apologists, and drab-looking websites, James White's material on Le Tombeau de Cameron has been superb. I hope you have been reading it.
- Congratulations to Dr. and Mrs. Warnock!
