Well, it was just Wednesday (Very Cool! Scot McKnight is Blogging!) that I re-hooked up with one of my seminary profs from Trinity, Scot McKnight.
Then on Friday Andrew Jones wrote his excellent blog on DA Carson's critique of the Emerging Church.
And on Friday, I commented on Andrew's blog and reiterated here (Conversant with Carson on Emergent) that “somebody has to argue Carson’s points (and NOT half-heartedly)…It is the language that Carson understands—a point-by-point refutation of his arguments. Who will do this?”
Then, on Saturday, Scot posts on Andrew’s blog that Scot was indeed preparing to do JUST THAT! Later on Saturday, Scot posted on my blog “I've got a first installment about Carson and the Emergent stuff on my website.”
Now it’s Monday, and Scot has already written Five installments, one for each of the first five chapters of Carson's book (Scot has an advance copy). This is not just a "refutation" (an unfortunate word choice by me), but a sincere dialogue and critique, affirming what Scot sees as positive contributions from Carson and also asking critical questions of Carson where he needs to be challenged.
Thank you, Lord, for using Scot McKnight to answer my prayer (And, man, that was FAST!)
Of course, I suspect that God was moving WAY AHEAD of my blog...He has a way of doing that... ;)
