In Defense of Christian Bookstores, Christian Publishers, and Southern Baptists
There are three, quick, easy, cheap ways to score points if you’re a hip, up-and-coming evangelical. Say something negative about Christian bookstores, Christian publishers, and/or Southern Baptists. If you hit on a criticism of all three, you’ll really get a lot of back pats and your blog will probably have a lot of new unique visitors. You might even get a book deal. You’ll definitely want to buy those cool, new “Rob Bell” glasses.
At the risk of sounding old-fashioned, I’m going to defend this seeming unholy trifecta.
