Article in the January Carolina Journal

The January edition of Carolina Journal includes my assessment of North Carolina Baptists' seeming lack of interest in promoting Christian education, something which seems obvious to me and some others. According to the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools, despite four thousand Southern Baptist congregations in North Carolina and over 450 religiously-based private schools in the state, less than 35 are sponsored by SBC churches or associations. According to Bruce Shortt of The Exodus Mandate, "The theology of this is not difficult; we simply don't want to do it." I have to agree.

The article is on page 10 here.
