Pietistic Goofiness

Above is the title of a post by Andy Naselli in light of a new book he has on the topic of Keswick theology. I can imagine that some would take exception to the title, and I am sympathetic to that. The mocking tone tends to turn away the open-minded. It can also be pointed out that the Kewick theology of today can be significantly different than the brand that was more common in years gone by.

Still, all rhetoric aside, sometimes it is profitably painful to have our convictions challenged and refined. Don’t be afraid to chew on the chicken and spit out the bones. The subtitle is “How Keswick Theology Nearly Destroyed J. I. Packer.” For some readers of this blog this may stimulate some helpful thinking in this area. There are links for further reading at the end of the post.
