I hope your summer has gone well, and that the new school year is an exciting time for you.
Starting next week, we are changing our post schedule slightly. For a while now, we’ve been posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. That has bothered the symmetrical side of our natures, so starting next week, new Emerging Scholars Blog posts will come your way on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Our usual schedule will be for me to post on Monday, Tom on Wednesday, and our new-and-improved Week-in-Review will go up on Fridays. Check in on those days for new posts, or you can subscribe to the blog by RSS or by email to be notified whenever there’s a new post.

The Week-in-Review will have a new format, too. In the past, we’ve struggled with sharing all of the good things that we’ve come across with you, and we know that you have limited time for reading. So the Week-in-Review will now be a “top five” feature – the top five articles or books that we’ve read, thought about, or been reminded of during the past week. We want to include your top five picks, as well. If you have a link or title you want us to include, send it to Tom or Mike for consideration.
Next week, look for my post on Monday (Labor Day – but I’ll be writing it on Thursday night to spend the weekend with my family) in which our 2nd ESN Online Book Club will be announced. I won’t ruin the surprise, except to say that, if you’re a Christian in the academy and you haven’t read this book, you need to do so. Specifically, you need to do so in October, along with Tom and me.
Have a great weekend!
