President of Midwestern Seminary enters blogosphere

Until very recently, Dr. Jason Allen was a colleague with me here at Southern Seminary. Last year, however, he took the helm as president of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has a vision for Midwestern that it serve the church of the Lord Jesus Christ. To that end, he has launched a new website this week. He’s already gotten several items posted, including the beginning of a series on theological education.

I particularly enjoyed a short post about LBJ’s biographer, Robert Caro. I recently finished volume four of Caro’s epic biography of LBJ’s life and times. It is a remarkable achievement, and Dr. Allen explains the eccentric devotion of Caro that made it possible.

It’s all good stuff. Watch the video preview above, and check out the site for yourself here.
