Willimon "Reviews" Ehrman

William Willimon (one of our favorite White Horse Inn guests) has "reviewed" Bart Ehrman's book, God's Problem: How the Bible Fails to Answer Our Most Important Question--Why We Suffer?  I put "review" in quotes, because as a former theological liberal himself, Willimon knows well the world Ehrman now seeks to inhabit and exposes Ehrman as a "poser" of the first order.  Good stuff from Willimon who really knows how to turn a phrase.  Click here: The Christian Century

Yet another church seeks to be "hipper-than-thou," promoting their "U2-charist," featuring U2 songs during their New Year's Eve communion service.  I thought U2 was pretty much passe in most circles.  Maybe they should feature "Coldplay" or "Porcupine Tree" next time.  Click here: U2 music to set church’s communion tone | Religion | - Houston Chronicle

Our old buddy Pat Robertson is at it again.  This time, God told him that America's financial crisis would pass because Americans would willingly embrace socialism.  According to Pat, God has gone Keynesian in his economics.  Well Pat, some of us haven't and won't.  Isn't it time for this guy to hide somewhere in shame?  Click here: Pat Robertson: God says U.S. will accept socialism

A couple other good movies of the same theme as Braveheart are The Legends of the Fall and A River Runs through it. It's frightfully cold here in Chicago- watching some good movies in a warm house this weekend sounds like a good idea to me.

John Y - excellent summary of the issue behind the Willimon piece. Very precise and concise. Good on ya, mate.

Appreciate it bloody well- you must be either from Australia, England or Scotland. I know mate is used more commonly in one of those three but I always forget which one and I cannot say that I have that many encounters with people from those areas. I guess New Zealand is another possibility eh? Oops I think eh is more Canadian than anything else.
