Anafalz. This is the Old High German word which means anvil. An anvil is used to shape metal.

So often our minds become like metal, hard and rigid. Anafalz is a place where the practical application of faith, theology and ethics will be open for discussion. A place where the mind can be worked on, softening the rigidity it has gained over time through discussions about current events, faith, theology, ethics and book reviews.

Glen McGraw is a graduate of Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary and is currently working on further postgraduate work through Bethel Seminary in St Paul, MN. Glen’s two major focuses in study are congregational care and theodicy. His desire to assist people to find a practical use of their faith is the driving force behind this blog and it was born from many conversations which have challenged him to allow his mind to be more pliable. He is an avid outdoorsman, a rabid hockey fan and a Minnesota Twins fan and is known to be heard “coaching” his teams from the living room. He lives in Texas where he works with Veterans.

    Hello my friend! Haven’t heard from you in while and I thought I would take the time to drop a small note.
    Your blog is fascinating… perspectives are fresh and make you think.
    I hope the snow is melting in MN.

    Until next chat!

    • Dejah,
      Thank you for taking the time to explore my blog. I am glad you are challenged by it and are enjoying it.
