The Subtle Manifesto is the blog of Brad Trout and Nick Koning, two friends serving at Mountain View Baptist Church and studying at the George Whitefield College.

Brad (left) and Nick (right) smile sweetly atop Lion’s Head. 

We will address all sorts of matters: evangelism, doctrine, pressing social concerns, Christian living, contextualization, Biblical interpretation, South Africa, and the odd wild and uncalled for rant.

It is our hope that through the blog we might play a small role in grounding the church in South Africa in the historic Gospel it proclaims, and in the historical situation to which it must proclaim. We long to see the church impact our age with the Gospel.
