Back in November, Peter Leithart, a prominent Protestant scholar and thinker, wrote a for First Things magazine about the end of Protestantism. You can read his post here.
This created a bit of a firestorm in the blogosphere from all brands of Protestants including from people in Peter’s “camp.” It’s this firestorm that caused a group of people at Biola University’s Torrey Honors Institute to gather together some of the loudest voices in this “conversation” to have a roundtable discussion about what was really being said. You can read the background of how all this came together here.
That event took place on April 29th and the video was quickly uploaded for people like me who missed the live event. I watched the entire discussion and I believe it was very helpful in clarifying a few things, but also pressing some other issues that need to be discussed.
I am now sharing that video with you as to inform my next few blog posts, because my next few posts will address some of the things discussed in the video.
Warning: This is best watched all at once even though it is just under 2.5 hours long. This is also not for the theologically faint of heart. These men will swim down to the bottom of the pool and start pulling up the tiles. So if that’s what you love and you’re a theology nerd like me, strap in, because this is a good one.
