Quick Links – Two Perspectives on the McLaren Dust Up

This week continues to present me with less time to write than I had hoped. But, here are two more perspectives on the early response to McLaren’s new book. Funny thing is some have not read it, like me, and still form some pretty firm opinions. In the first link my friend Mike Morrell offers something of a polemic for a more charitable form of conversation where no one gets shut out.

The second link is to a post from David Fitch. I consider him a friend, though we do not know one another well. He offered an online course at Northern Seminary I participated in a couple of years ago. I may try to connect with him near Chicago in April. David perceptively draws out some points about leadership as he thinks through the issues floating around. As Bill Kinnon tweeted, David is smarter and more gracious and brings Mohler to the table.

    Hi Todd, glad you linked to David Fitch – I just added him to my blog feed. If only Long Grove were a little closer to where I live!!!

    By the way, I heard you and Nate are coming up here to see NT Wright. Very exciting!

    1. Hello Natalie,
      I too wish you were close to Lone Grove. I really enjoyed the course I took. His book The Great Giveaway is worth the time.

      And yes, we will be up your way in April. Hopefully we will have the chance to say “Hello” in person.
