I have especially appreciated the book reviews, several of which moved me to pick up a copy and study the text first-hand. What I have read has helped me both in my own spiritual life as well as in mentoring and counseling the young men of my congregation.

I enjoy reading Fan and Flame because it seeks to do something rare in our sound-bite, click-bait internet culture—namely, provide nuanced, freshly stated, and clear biblical wisdom on theological and cultural topics. Benjamin provides a very personal window into the daily rhythms of local pastoral ministry.

Benjamin captures my interest through excellent writing, insightful book reviews, and personnel reflections. He tackles life’s obstacles, controversial topics, and provides hope in a way that’s compassionate and nonjudgmental.

I have followed this blog for at least six months and have found it to be thoughtful and stimulating. And when a book review really hits home, you’ll want to buy it to read more. Definitely recommend.

I have greatly enjoyed reading Benjamin’s blog. The content never lacks for timeliness, and often controversy. But more importantly, it never lacks for a “cut to the chase” biblical perspective, [all] delivered in a writing style that keeps me coming back for more.

I appreciate Benjamin’s honest, vulnerable style. He creatively weaves solid theological teaching with down-to-earth ideas. His writing reveals his passion to see God glorified as people learn to live out the Gospel in all areas of life.
