Of course, there are three levels at which one must be convinced:
1. Does Keller really say these things?
2. Is he wrong?
3. Does it matter?
There is no question that the book is accurately portraying Keller's ideas, and the critics seem to be on the right side on some of the points discussed. As to how important Keller's unfortunate phraseology is, I'm not sure. Nor am I sure that it was worth writing a book about it.
Anyway, here are the chapters of the volume, with a running score:
Introduction - the editors do a fine job defending the publication of the book, but I am still uneasy. Is it really worth the effort? The editors asked Keller to write responses (p. 22), but he was too busy. That's a real shame, I think, and at this stage the points are shared.
Keller ½, Critics ½
Sin - when Keller talks to "moderns" he talks about sin as disobedience, but in preaching to postmoderns he emphasises sin as being idolatry. Are we allowed to emphasise different aspects of biblical truth like that? I see no reason not to.
Keller 1½, Critics ½
Hell - following C. S. Lewis, Keller argues that people in hell are there because they chose to be.Read more ›

This book is very clearly and carefully written.
I appreciate how the writers show that a certain emphasis (or neglect of a certain emphasis) in doctrine can have serious implications for those who are being taught (as well as for the teacher).

The introduction gives such a good 'apologetic' for the book it might as well be an 8th essay. Written in a very respectful and direct way - iron sharpening iron at it's best.Published on August 24, 2013 by Warren Hill
