I don’t know Chris Blumhofer but I already like him

THANK YOU THANK YOU Mr. B b/c you detest the pop culturization of Our Lord as much as me! It may sell a lot of books to distill the creator of the earth, the Alpha and Omega, the maker of all things (of course this descriptive list is by definition incomplete owing to our inability to grasp the infinite) to a business principle…but er, can the Created really appropriate the Creator for its own ends? When exegesis is inversed into starting first with a principle for our own sake, we become impoverished, losing all sense of our proper relationship to Him. The logical outcome of that trend is what CS Lewis termed “God in the Dock.”
