Exegesis

Two posts in one day. Whaddayaknow?

Unfortunately, in some Evangelical circles, we’ve done great work in exegeting and studying Scripture, but we’ve done lesser work in understanding people and culture. Bob Kellemen, at RPM Ministries blog

How true this is. According to Kellemen, this is the main reason that so much of what Brian McLaren’s says A New Kind of Christianity is appealing. I’ve enjoyed the two introductory posts in this series of replies to McLaren’s new book, and I would already recommend the series to anyone who disagrees with McLaren–especially people who have asked what one of Kellemen’s friends asked:

“What is Brian saying that is persuasive to so many? What can we learn?”

Because after all, we always want to be learning, right? Why “throw the baby out with the bathwater,” as they say? Why not take away what good we can from McLaren’s questions and throw away the rest?
