Well, I’ve joined the blog world.  I intend to occasionally post material on this blog mostly commenting on issues of importance to Christ’s church, especially in the areas of culture and politics, from a reformed evangelical perspective.  I’ll often post links to webpages, documents, audio and video that I find helpful or interesting (including a book review here and there).  Maybe you’ll find something here that will be of some benefit to you as well.  Feel free to spread the word about this blog to others.

Who am I?  Troy Gibson, a college professor (Political Science) and husband of one wife, father of three.  We attend a local congregation of the PCA in Hattiesburg, MS.  You can download my curriculum vita (academic resume) here: CURRICULUM VITAE.

Hobbies: Reading (history, theology, apologetics, politics and culture); Southern Miss athletics; playing with my kids.

If you would like to be added to my goodreads.com page (has all the books I’ve read, am reading, plan to read, and recommendations), send email and I’ll add you.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER #1:  The views and opinions expressed by the host of this blog are not necessarily those of the host’s owner, the Lord Jesus Christ or His member churches. Please consult His book for opinion-Truth congruence.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER #2:  What’s a blog post?  A blog is not a published manuscript subject to pre-publication scrutiny.  The thoughts of bloggers and usually their respondents are not vetted or peer-reviewed prior to posting.  Moreover, blogged ideas or statements pertaining to the church or doctrine are not published within the context of a faith community where standards and interpreters can assess them for confessional proximity.  As such, blog comments should be treated with as much seriousness as any comment that is made or heard in a conversation between two or more people. Comments are made, sometimes they are withdrawn, sometimes they are revised, sometimes they are said incompletely or imprecisely, sometimes they are changed in response to discussant critiques or upon further reflection.  Keep these things in mind as you read this and any blog.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER #3: The views and opinions expressed on this blog, by the blog host (yours truly), by commentators, or any one else featured on the blog are not necessarily those of the University of Southern Mississippi or its administration, staff, students, or faculty.

    Not seeing an email button but I’d love to share your booklist on goodreads. I’ve just discovered this blog today and already love it. For most of our marriage my husband and I have made regular visits to Hattiesburg as his parents lived there. I’m assuming you’re a prof at usm and that you either attend woodland or first pres. I think this is just the kind of blog I’ve been longing for. Keep up the good work.

      Wow, thanks for the warm remarks! We attend Woodland. Are you on goodreads? You should be able to friend me on there and see my book list.
