A Letter to a Friend #2

Anthony W. Brooks In my last letter, dear Athanasius, I laid out my thoughts and concerns about the anxiety I feel with every fiber of my consciousness. Your words to me were as a horse’s bridle steering me toward certainty. What I was feeling was the same thing you felt in your walk in thisContinue reading “A Letter to a Friend #2”

A letter to a friend

Anthony W. Brooks I know it seems strange to write to you now. It has been so long and we’ve both changed in so many ways. It seems so unfathomable that I would decide to write this at such a redundant time in our lives, but I need to unpack my thoughts on someone. IContinue reading “A letter to a friend”

Why Christians Should Write And Be Good At It

Anthony W. Brooks The title is hypocritical, let’s start with that. Here I am writing an article about being a good author, while I am a crappy one. Always thinking, imagining, and typing away on a blog with less than 100,000 visitors. But, I want to make one thing clear from the start, you don’tContinue reading “Why Christians Should Write And Be Good At It”

Adding A Contributor Plus Some Thoughts

Anthony W. Brooks I want to start off by apologizing for my absence. It has been over a week since I’ve typed at any length, but with the election and a crazy work schedule I found no time to wander about “dem internets” or type on the keyboard to any extent. I know that youContinue reading “Adding A Contributor Plus Some Thoughts”

Why We Need to Pay Attention to No Quarter November

Anthony W. Brooks I’ve been reading Douglas Wilson for a few years now. Since I’ve entered the Reformed world there has been one name under heaven by which all people screech in division and this name is Doug Wilson. Since I’ve been teaching I’ve tried to be balanced, agreeing where I can agree and callingContinue reading “Why We Need to Pay Attention to No Quarter November”

You Need to Read

Anthony W. Brooks We’ve all tried it. Starting in Genesis we will make it at a swift pace and work our way through creation and the flood. Abraham receiving the sign from God… Lot being rescued from the city as God rains down fire from heaven… then we may or may not read the genealogiesContinue reading “You Need to Read”

The Virtuous Ivory Tower

Anthony W. Brooks I haven’t had an opportunity as of yet to smoke a cigar with brandy in hand and sit around and talk politics with the guys. That may be fun for some people but for me a good book and some Oreos are enough. Maybe it’s a lifestyle to look at the lowerContinue reading “The Virtuous Ivory Tower”

Skylarking for Skylarking’s Sake

Anthony W. Brooks It may seem axiomatic to say that opinion and thought blogs either are full of troublemakers or are mostly ignored. My blog tends to be the latter, but I’m okay with that now. It is the equivalent of, “Hi I’m Anthony and I have a problem…” Hi Anthony! But we can’t ignoreContinue reading “Skylarking for Skylarking’s Sake”

A Brief Defense of Hard Words and Careless Words

Anthony W. Brooks Most of what I write is easy to digest. I want the reader to take it in and continue to read what I have put out there to read. My desire is to put my thoughts out there for the few people who actually pay attention to be encouraged by those thoughts.Continue reading “A Brief Defense of Hard Words and Careless Words”
