Thank You Eric Svendsen for NTRMin.org

I was contacted recently by a person who couldn’t access my Reformation papers on Eric Svendsen’s Ntrmin.org website. It appears Ntrmin.org has vanished. Ntrmin was one of the best sites for countering Roman Catholic apologetics. Dr. Svendsen graciously hosted some of my longer papers on Martin Luther and the Reformation, as well as providing numerous helpful articles on Roman Catholicism.

The Ntrmin website was around for many years. It also hosted a discussion forum called The Areopagus. It was there I became acquainted with Dr. Svendsen’s work, as well as that of Jason Engwer (now of the Triablogue clan), and Pastor David King (author of Holy Scripture: The Ground and Pillar of Our Faith volume 1). I also met a number of other people, many of which I’m still in contact with today. This was all due to the Ntrmin website.

Dr. Eric Svendsen has authored of a number of books of Roman Catholicism. I highly recommend the following:

Upon This Slippery Rock: Countering Roman Catholic Claims to Authority (Amityville, NY: Calvary Press, 2002)

Who is My Mother? The Role and Status of the Mother of Jesus in the New Testament and Roman Catholicism (Amityville, NY: Calvary Press, 2001)

Evangelical Answers: A Critique of Current Roman Catholic Apologists (Lindenhurst, NY: Reformation Press, 1999)

He’s also been a guest on the Iron Sharpens Iron program discussing these books (free mp3 downloads here).

I’m not sure what Eric’s plans are in regard to his website. Perhaps he’s decided to move on, or perhaps he’s rebuilding it. Either way, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Svendsen for the Ntrmin.org website. I’ve used it often during the years, and I’m grateful for all the work he put into it. It was one of the first sites that I found directly responding to the newer breed of Roman Catholic apologists. If he’s decided to take the website down, it will indeed be missed.
