TiS celebrates its first birthday!

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

I am writing to you in celebration of Theology in Sneakers’ (TiS) one year anniversary! I would like to thank you for all your prayers and continued support offered since the launch of TiS.

In the past year, TiS has received over 12,000 visits from across the globe representing over 100 countries. Thank you to all of you for sharing this ministry with your friends and families and contributing to this humbling blessing. Additionally, I would like to affectionately thank the 50+ loyal readers that have subscribed to automatically receive new TiS posts through Twitter and e-mail.

TiS continues to strive to provide answers founded in accurate biblical interpretation, thorough research, and logic-based thought. It has expanded from 15 posts at launch to over 50 posts covering a wide range of topics, from evil and suffering in the world to effective witnessing. It has truly been a blessing to have God use TiS in order to defend, proclaim, and expand His Kingdom.

In the last 12 months, it has been exciting to launch several new features, including:

  • Audio Narration – Listen to posts while reading along or multitasking
  • Post Feature Icons – Single-click navigation on each post to available presentation slides, handouts, videos and audio recordings
  • Online Radio Show ( – Sit back and tune in to the “Theology in Sneakers” show as we discuss theological matters, current affairs, objections to Christianity, and more
  • Video Gallery – Easy-to-use thumbnail index view of all video content available
  • Intelligent Content Pushing – Related content is highlighted in sidebar based on current article being read
  • Theological Word of the Day – Receive a daily dose of theological terms to enrich your study of the Bible
  • Dynamic Widget – Quickly and easily share TiS by installing a widget on your web site that automatically updates for every newly added post or video
  • Enhanced Search Functionality – More accurately search and quickly access desired content

Once again, I would like to sincerely thank you for your support through the comments and questions posted on TiS. Furthermore, I am humbled that some of you have invited me to speak at your churches and I am truly grateful that God has been blessing me with this ministry. I praise the Lord for having the opportunity to use TiS to proclaim His Name and defend “The Way”.

Sola Deo Gloria (Glory to God Alone!)
