Permissions Policy

With the exception of “guest posts” written by others (see the bottom of this page), Brentwood Baptist owns the content on this Web site. It is copyrighted in Brentwood Baptist’s name. I want to strike the appropriate balance between getting my content widely distributed while at the same time protecting my intellectual property rights. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

Without My Permission

You are free to do the following without Brentwood Baptist’s permission:

  • Link to my site or any specific post on my site.
  • Extract and re-post less than 200 words on any other site, provided you link back to my original post.
  • Print off my posts and photocopy up to 50 copies for internal distribution within your own company or organization.
  • Print my posts in any non-commercial publication (e.g., company newsletter, church newsletter, class syllabus, etc.), provided you include this copyright notice: “© 2013, Brentwood Baptist. All rights reserved. Originally published at”

Not Without Brentwood Baptist’s Permission

You must have Brentwood Baptist’s express written consent to do any of the following:

  • Use this content in for commercial purposes, including selling or licensing printed or digital versions of this site’s content.
  • Alter, transform, or build upon this work.

Re-posting and Translation Rights

Brentwood Baptist does not permit the re-posting of this site’s posts in their entirety. This is because Google penalizes websites for publishing duplicate content. It often can’t tell which site hosts the original, so there is a risk of getting penalized for granting permission.

In addition, Brentwood Baptist does not allow the translation and publication of this site’s work in other languages. Brentwood Baptist simply don’t have the resources to validate the quality of the work.

Guest Posts

Guest bloggers retain the copyright to the posts they write. The above permission guidelines do not apply to their work. If you are interested in re-posting or publishing their content, you must contact them directly. Brentwood Baptist cannot serve as a broker, agent, or contact point.

If you have some use for this site’s content that is not covered here, please email me.
