Blogging in the name of the Lord

I've just completed an interview for Guy Davies' blog, Exiled Preacher. Its in his 'Blogging in the name of the Lord' series of interviews with other evangelical bloggers.
There's quite a bit about my personal background in it, but most of it is about my views on a number of issues relating to the way evangelicals, especially reformed evangelicals, write about history. Some of my answers are intentionally provocative, particularly over the ministry of Martyn Lloyd-Jones, simplistic non-historical understandings of revival and the prevalence of fundamentalism among evangelicals. The big thing I was trying to get across is that history is not theology, and that our understanding of history must be driven by the evidence that we are able to amass, not our theological predilictions of what stripe they might be!
