Dr. Bill Mounce

Please join us in our new blog

How would you like to wake up every day and learn something new about Christianity? Perhaps theology, Bible study, Church History, or World Missions. This has been the purpose of our blog, the Curious Christian. But now Bill Mounce is moving his blog on spiritual growth from his personal site to BiblicalTraining, and so we are combining these two blogs under the new name, The Path, Bill's favorite metaphor for the Christian life (Matthew 7:13–14).
