MAD AS A ‘WET CAT’
THE BISHOP OF DURHAM
Challies Announces He’s Writing His First Book
Tim Challies told readers of his blog today that he has signed on with Crossway Books to write a volume tentatively titled “The Discipline of Discernment.” In his announcement he said, “It will be written for the ‘thoughtful general reader’ (i.e. people like you and me) and will lead Christians with what I hope and trust will be helpful, biblical teaching about spiritual discernment.” The projected date of publication is slated for late 2007 or early 2008.
A college student named Mickey, located in California, weighs in on the Warnock/Phillips debate.
“The main reason for people not believing in God is the behaviour of people who do believe in God. I am fed up with the disgraceful quarrelling among Anglicans when they should be addressing major world questions. I suppose there was a bit of anger and swearing, but I get worked up in the pulpit and I get quite lively. Dogmatism is destroying the reasonableness and realism of religion.”
So says David Jenkins, one of Britain’s most controversial figures, and former Bishop of Durham. In response, Al Mohler writes, “So there you have it — orthodox Anglicans have caused the retired bishop to curse. And it’s the conservatives who, he insists, are “destroying the reasonableness and realism of religion.”
