After two weeks, the 2008 Puritan Reading Challenge has eclipsed the 200 mark (currently at 204) for those taking the challenge and nearing the mark of 100 blogs promoting/blogging it as well (currently at 99). Very cool. For those of you who are on Facebook, Tracy has also started a Facebook Group for the PRC which you can join by going here. On another note, I talked to RHB who mentioned to me that they have sold nearly 150 sets (the “P&P Special”). While there are more taking the challenge than I am aware of, the fact that the great majority have bought the entire set of 12 books is fantastic, which leads me to believe that the majority of you are reading the Puritans for the first time. Boy are you in for a treat!

On a personal note, I am beginning a full load of classes for the Spring semester next week. What this means is that I will not have the time to blog as much in the future (as you could imagine). However, I am going to do everything I can to be encourager and facilitator of discussion in the weeks and months to come. More than the initial excitement is a passion to spread the knowledge of God and savor the greatness of His grace with others like you. May we all with renewed minds and resolved hearts press on to know the Lord!

Three Notes to Remember:
