Band of Bloggers @ TGC [update]

At this year's Gospel Coalition Conference in Chicago I will be participating in the Band of Bloggers gathering going down Tuesday night at 5pm, April 12. These are always a good time where you also get some great free books. I just found out my book, Note to Self: The Discipline of Preaching to Yourself, will be one of the giveaways! That means you can get it before it's even available for purchase online. Here are the details on the BoB gathering.

The theme for this year’s gathering is The Gospel Procession. A procession entails a concerted effort by a community to catalyze a movement, and in our case a gospel movement. A lot of talk is talking place on the Internet regarding being “gospel-centered,” and what this theme seeks to do is invoke the participation of all those who love the gospel and desire to leverage their lives for its advance in every sphere of their lives. Therefore, the purpose and theme transcends the gathering and endeavors to see a gospel procession take place through our blogging and influence on social media and other various online networks.

I have asked ten other men to join me in facilitating this meeting. During our event, they will moderate round-table discussions as well as participate in panel discussions on related topics. The men leading this event are:

Justin Taylor, Tim Challies, Joe Thorn, Steve McCoy, Jared Wilson, Trevin Wax, Justin Buzzard, Collin Hansen, John Starke, Owen Strachan, and Tim Brister

...[We are] shrinking the size of the gathering to 150 people for the purpose of incorporating everyone in the discussion and providing a venue conducive to our goals.  Having said that, this gathering will likely fill up quickly, so you will want to register as soon as possible. The cost for this year’s gathering and dinner is $25.

Good conversation and free books! I look forward to seeing many of you there!
