Read It

Filed under: — jen d @ 11:53 am

Several bloggers have highlighted this article by Dr. Kevin Bauder of Central Theological Seminary and encouraged you to read it. Now I am doing the same. It took me, afterall, at least three different encouragements to finally make the time to read it, and I’m so glad I did. As I read through it, I said, “I must quote this paragraph on the blog; no, wait, this one. No, this one here!” In the end, I would have to quote just about the whole article in order to highlight every sparkling gem of honesty and exhortation found therein. Certain paragraphs made me want to stand up and applaude, loudly, right here in the office. Dr. Bauder addresses with all tact, humility, honesty, and sobriety the reasons for the widespread disillusionment with fundamentalism as it actually stands today, and then anchors his posited basis for refocussing its center on the idea behind fundamentalism–and idea that in many circles and amongst many well-meaning but unfocussed people, has been lost. Read it. I think you’ll be surprised, encouraged and challenged.
