    So Happy for him to be with Jesus, and sooo broken-hearted for his family. every time I hear of someone passing sooner than expected, it makes me so thankful that Jesus has allowed Karen to be with us so long…….praying

    BrianD that is a beautiful tribute to a beautiful man.
    His ministry encouraged me and challenged me.
    Love was written all over his writings.

  6. Bill Kinnon says:

    Well done, indeed, BrianD. This is a tough time for those of us who loved Michael and wonder why his time was so short.

  7. Mark N says:

    Thanks for writing this. Michael was a friend to all of us who found ourselves within the Evangelical circus. He pointed to a way out that didn’t begin with deconstructing the church, but with focusing on Jesus. Love that man…

    BrianD, “Throughout that journey, Michael Spencer never lost sight of Jesus, which probably enabled him to see Jesus above the virtues and flaws of the ministries and theology of the men and women he encountered along the way.”

    praying we can all hold that ground and praying, too, for protection and annointing upon his book yet to be released to us

    I agree, well done BrianD!!!

  11. BrianD says:

    Mark, I am sure this is very hard on you and the others at the BHT.

    iMonk taught me much, and I never had the privilege to meet him. I did interact with him a few times, nothing special.

    Andrew Jones, sorry I deleted your post – but am happy I was able to rescue it.

    Here’s what I posted over at the

    I think Michael’s impact is revealed by the fact that this feels like such a loss. Rarely do I have such a strong sense that someone like the Imonk comes along very rarely. I didn’t always agree with Michael, but I learned a lot from his willingness to share his heart.

    When I say he will be missed…i mean it.

  13. Michael says:


    Well said.
