    I think I have a few of his books, maybe this one but as you know my library is in storage. So I bought this one on kindle with the intention of reading and following this discussion. But for some reason, I’m having trouble reading, very shot attention span. But I’m trying. It is always good to read broadly.

    Sometimes it is a struggle, especially in times like these. Keep on keeping on…

    Randy,

    I think a lot of us are having a hard time focusing.
    This is a short book, but the ideas are dense…I’ll be interested in any responses you have.

    Interesting observations and analysis… those of us, pastors and pew sitters, that watched this shift develop were very concerned as relevance shifted to accommodation…
    Hopefully, what i am reading is a move away from conga line Christianity (probably no one knows what a conga line was, but…) back to the incredible depth and richness of the Faith….

    Em,

    perhaps one of the results of the current crisis will be the realization that this “gospel” has no power…

    Speaking of Bob Webber…I just finished a book by James KA Smith, a philosopher
    at Calvin College. He credits Webber for being a major influence on his thinking, though he says he never met the guy. The book is “You Are What You Love.” I think he dedicated the book to Webber.

    I’ll look it up. Bob Webber was a dear friend for many years and greatly missed. In the banner, the PhxP Theological Affirmations are based on his work…

    One of my favorite quotes from Smith’s book: “We’re not just brains-on-a-stick.”
    He’s very critical of the Cartesian, unbalanced view of the human person as primarily as just thinking things. In fact, I know he credits Webber with helping
    him see things differently.
