...Hafa Adai #9 -- our most recent ministry update posted today.

...Ben Witherington really likes it. On the other hand, Scot McKnight likes a lot of it but thinks that Rob Bell's sloppiness with the facts detracts from it -- "it" being Bell's new book Sex God.

I probably won't have time to read this book anytime soon (you should see the pile on my desk) but I do appreciate the fact that it can generate differing responses from two top notch scholars -- and those scholars make their work available to us through their blogs -- without cost. We live in an incredible flat era where there are not only creative books coming through the pipe -- but also opportunity for significant dialog about the ideas in those books available to people from all walks of life, living on all corners of the planet. We shouldn't take this for granted.
