Benjamin Morgan Palmer was the Pastor of First Presbyterian Church of New Orleans from 1856-1902. He is remembered as an excellent theologian in the Southern Presbyterian tradition and a preacher without peer.
The author of Southern Reformation has chosen, for reasons of his own that he doesn’t wish to share, to blog under a pseudonym, and has chosen B.M. Palmer as a reminder of the now-forgotten theologian and preacher’s work and ministry and as an example of careful scholarship and passionate preaching.
He holds a Bachelor of Theology (B.Th.) in Dogmatics and is currently pursuing both a Bachelor of Divinity (B.D.)and a Master of Theology (Th.M.) simultaneously. Like the original B.M. Palmer, he is a son of South Carolina who was born and raised in the Palmetto State.
The usual schedule is that posts will go up Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. This gives me time to write posts in bulk and then schedule them to appear. Occasionally I’ll announce that nothing new is going up for a bit so that I can block out time to work on my thesis.
