A, Possibly, Not So Helpful Endorsement

January 6, 2009

Rob Bell writes in his endorsement of N. T. Wright’s book, Justification: God’s Plan and Paul’s Vision:

“I find it quite stunning that a book dealing with the subject of justification could be this compelling of a read.”

This is written on the back of a  book dealing with the subject of justification.   I’m not sure this quote really suggests the importance of the topic.  Does anyone else see the irony of this statement?

    My personal favorite is, “John Piper, it turns out, has done us all a wonderful favor…” Emphasis being placed on “it turns out.”
