Real life blogger
From the Christianity Today interview with Gordon Atkinson, author of
The lesson I have learned—and I feel it in my heart—is that many people stand outside the church, and we don't communicate very well with them. Maybe fault lies on both sides, but I feel grief at our inability to talk with people of this world.

And in the category of Any-Blogger-Who-Tells-You-Different-Is-A-Liar:
I think that I wanted to say some things and wasn't brave enough to say them myself. So I invented a character and set him down in a place where anyone can say anything. Then I turned him loose. In some ways, Real Live Preacher is the truest I've been to myself. In other ways, he is the person I wish I were brave enough to be in real life. In other ways, he is what I hope to be when I grow up.
