Christianity Today released a profile of Al Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
The article’s portrayal of Mohler was seen by many as condescending and biased, leading to push-back from Justin Taylor, Kevin DeYoung, and Trevin Wax.
Conversely the featuring of Mohler in CT, including comments insisting that in order to hold to inerrancy one must be complementarian, has led to some push-back from another angle. Both Daniel Kirk and Scot McKnight suggest this is one signal of a larger change in evangelicalism, in which “moderate” or “big tent” evangelicals are being pushed out.
On anther front, rarely have I seen a book take as much heat as McCracken’s Hipster Christianity, most recently from James K.A. Smith in The Other Journal. Also critical was Patrol Magazine, while Relevant and Christianity Today featured critical but less scathing thoughts on the phenomenon.
