Coptic Martyr

The Coptic Martyr of Cairo

The latest international thriller from best-selling author Martin Roth

Four Americans in Egypt on an archaeological dig. In the blistering summer heat they are fighting amongst themselves. Then they unearth a body. It is an old priest who has been murdered.

The gruesome discovery sets in train a sequence of events that leads to a deadly Islamist attack on the ancient church where the Americans are working.

The leader of the expedition, Professor Rafa Harel, must decide whether to withdraw his fractious team or continue on a mission to unveil a controversial series of wall paintings, knowing that these images have the power to spark even greater violence.

Meanwhile, watching over all of them is a dreamy young Egyptian Christian named Amir. His only quest in life is to become a martyr...

Christian Blogging – Bigger and Better

Christian bloggers are exploding.

That’s how I started an article I wrote two-and-a-half years ago, on the then-novel phenomenon of Christian blogging, pointing to the fast-growing numbers of Christian bloggers.

Now, new things are happening.

Perhaps the most significant is the three-day GodBlog Conference, starting today at Biola University:

The conference will be an opportunity for Christian bloggers to network and learn about how blogging can be used to expand Christian influence in the blogging world. The conference will include speakers such as talk show host Hugh Hewitt, Dr. John Mark Reynolds of the Torrey Honors Institute, and Dr. Timothy Muehlhoff of Biola’s communications department.

Naturally, conference organizers have launched their own blog, and I was interested to read:

I have finished the search for a session leader for our "Turn your Blogging into a Writing Career" breakout session. James Scott Bell, novelist, screenwriter, and law commentator brings his immense amount of experience in the publishing industry to GodBlogCon. Bell is not only talented, but also eminently qualified to talk about how to develop a writing career. He also blogs at Suspend Your Disbelief.

That’s one session I’d like to attend.

Another recent development is the evolution of the excellent blogs4God directory of Christian blogs (which grew out of a list that started on this website). It’s attractive, it seems to have some talented new moderators and it’s full of excellent blogposts.

I’m sure there’s lots more happening, and I hope to write more in future.
