More on Rob Bell controversy ...

As I mentioned yesterday, controversies like this often put a lot of people "under the gun," being asked to repudiate this or that person or book to prove one's good standing in some circles. Lots of folks responded in various venues, and I thought it might be helpful to link to this older post on dealing with criticism. I should hastily add that I often fall short of my own high ideals in this ... and find myself perpetually in the corner with the Publican in Jesus' parable, praying, "God, be merciful to me, a sinner."
