The Best Blog Posts I Read in March-April 2016

Here is a list of some of the best blog posts I read in March-April that pertain to the themes of Jesus without Baggage. I hope you find a few articles here that are interesting and useful to you.

If you have written, or read, an article that you think might fit these themes, mention them in comments with a link and I might be able to include them next time. It doesn’t matter when they were written.

Have a great day! ~Tim
