Scot McKnight and His Gang on "Making the Best of It"

Überblogger Scot McKnight, Professor of New Testament at North Park in Chicago and an indefatigable and highly esteemed writer, editor, and blogger, has launched a friendly and critical look at your servant’s new book, Making the Best of It: Following Christ in the Real World (Oxford University Press). McKnight has a (deservedly) huge following, and any readers of this blog who would like to get in on the beginning of a wide-ranging and intelligent discussion on Scot’s should go here to find it.

Many thanks, Brother McKnight, for taking time for my work. And many thanks also to blogger Michael Kruse, one of the earliest bloggers to notice the book—and to defend it, I see, on Scot’s blog, too!

    Dr. Stackhouse, this in an exceptional book. I had already come to many of the general conclusions you write about but the way you have woven these together puts some “flesh on the bones” of my ethical thinking.

    I don’t know that I’m defending the book that well at Jesus Creed. I’ve already erred a couple of times, misrepresenting Niebuhr and myself. I hope I do the book justice. I hope you’ll feel free to enter the discussion should you be so inclined. I know other authors Scot has featured have done so.

    Thanks for the link.

    Many thanks for you kind remarks above, but more importantly for an excellent book. I’m Anabaptist and you’re making me reconsider central ideas. Thanks.
