I have mentioned before that I was first turned on to Winslow by a post written a long time ago by Joe Thorn. To this day I cannot remember exactly what post it was, but I do distinctly remember reading it on his blog and being completely blown away by not only the quote he had mentioned, but the fact that I had never heard of this Victorian Baptist Englishman with the funny name.
Needless to say, Joe is almost as big of a Winslow nut as I am (almost Joe, sorry!) and to further prove his love for the Big-O, he and his family have recently adopted this cute little 2 month old puppy mix and have named him Winslow!
I first heard about this through Joe’s Twitter feed and I just about fell out of my chair when I read in his tweet that they had named their new pup after Winslow. I’m sort of jealous because as a dog groomer, I not only love dogs but I had actually planned on naming our next dog Winslow! So needless to say, Joe stole my thunder.
But hey. That’s OK with me.
I just look at it this way. From now on when people ask him and his family why they named their dog Winslow, they will probably go home to Google it and wind up here at the Archive!
Thanks for the traffic Joe and congrats on the new pup!
I am so excited to announce that a new etching of Winslow has been discovered!
It is currently in a collection of original documents and papers of nonconformist literature in England that are in the family possession of a reader of this blog.
He requested that he only be referred to as Peter and that no fuss or attention be drawn to him.
I want to publicly thank Peter for agreeing to make this important historical document available to us!
Many thanks to Jacob Abshire for heading this giveaway and allowing the readers of this blog to have a shot at winning one!

My family and I are going on vacation next week and I will not be able to write the new post. I was hoping to have it done this week, but it’s been very busy around the house with trying to get ready for the trip.
So I will see you guys back here on March 7!

From our “About” page:
The Reformed Quotes Fellowship exists to bring together those of us throughout the internet who have created and administer websites, blogs, and other media outlets that are dedicated to routinely posting past quotes from writers, preachers, teachers, and scholastics of the reformed faith. The Fellowship is simply a gathering of such like minded people who wish to see the fame of Christ spread throughout the internet by the use of God glorifying, cross centered, gospel rich, and unashamedly reformed quotes from saints of the past and present.
This Fellowship also serves to encourage, strengthen, and edify her members who have so chosen to establish these sites. By coming together in the common bond of Christ our Savior, we shall show Christ honoring unity as we stand together to reclaim the dark recesses of the internet to the glory of God our Father and his Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you too have a website, blog, Facebook fanpage, or Twitter account that you use to post theologically reformed quotes on a routine basis, wouldn’t you please consider standing with us?
I have just become aware that The Precious Things of God is FINALLY back in print…and in hardcover to boot!
Winslow fans have been waiting for this one for a long time!
