What Can "Edginess" Say to the Church?

A number of Christian authors, bloggers and writers are taking on some of the sacred cows of evangelical Christianity -- and usually managing to stimulate, provoke and, sometimes, infuriate. Over at The Christian Manifesto today, I have a new post about it.

G....Great article. I read two of those bloggers every day. And you are right, there is a certain edge to them that often rankles me.

However, Driscoll as a preacher doesnt bother me as much, becuase his frankness is about my own sin and the slow charade of phoniness we have.

great article. I havent read the manifesto before this, but i will now since they featured you!

Glynn,
You are always good at making me aware of so much I was unaware of. Your statement about what hits closest to home is like a statement my husband made, that when people are offended or get defensive, it's because truth was spoken. It's a good check for me. When I get offended or defensive or infuriated, I take it like the idiot light that blinks on the car dashboard and check myself: what truth is being told about me that I need to listen to?
