We've Moved!

If you are reading this, you are at the wrong blog address. Last week we transitioned to a new blog:

I just updated the new blog with a new post: Does Discourse Analysis Matter? Here is an excerpt:

In one of our classes at GIAL (now Dallas International University) our professor gave us a great example of the importance of discourse analysis. He told us that a missionary had been working with a people group for a very long time. So long, in fact, that he had begun teaching people the Bible in their own language. He got to the famous verse in John 14:6 when Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

The people immediately responded, saying, “If that is what Jesus said we will worship you.” You can imagine the missionary was a bit shocked to hear such a response. He figured that he must have worded it incorrectly. So, he tried again, Jesus said “I am the way, the truth, and the life…” And the people responded again: “We have trusted in Jesus, we believe what he says. So, if he said that, we will worship you.”

Starting next week this page will just redirect to the new blog site.
