Rumours have been flying round the blogososphere that Guy Davies and David Sky are the same person. Well, one reader has asked if that is the case, anyway. To try to nip this in the bud, I've decided to do a one-off Blogging in the name of the Lord special interview. The series will return later in the year.
GD: Hello David, tell us a little bit about yourself.
DS: Well, I am a Brit who studied theology at the Evangelical Theological College of Wales, now know as WEST. I decided to get into blogging, because no one else was doing a very good job.
GD: I hear that you suffered from learning difficulties at WEST. Did you need a Teaching Assistant to help you in lessons?
DS: No. I was so clever and well-educated before I went to WEST that they couldn't teach me anything. That is why I had learning difficulties. I probably should have gone to the London Theological Seminary, which caters for really gifted students. As they say, "You can tell an LTS man, but you can't tell him much."
GD: In your blogging manifesto, you claimed that your blog, "Sky's the Limit" will the blogging equivalent of Augustine's Confessions and Calvin's Institutes. Do you suffer from delusions of grandeur?
DS: No, why do you ask?
GD: Hmmm. Right, you carried a post by "Jake Coolicus" on Ten Proposals for World Peace. Is Jake a real person, or did you make him up?
DS: Well, I kind of made him up. You see, I noted that the biggest theology blog is Ben Myres' Faith and Theology . Ben's secret seems to be typing lots of quotes and getting his imaginary friend "Kim Fabricius" to write hymns and "Ten Propositions" about this, that and the other. I thought that I might take a leaf from his book.
GD: Oh, that explains it then. Just to clear things up, you are not really the Exiled Preacher, are you?
DS: No, I'm Sky's the Limit.
