Quote of the Week

"In some of these caricatures, I recognize some real people that actually do resemble them -- people who could read the Westminster Confession through a keyhole and use both eyes -- but Piper is not one of them, and there are a host of biblical, theological Reformed scholars who would agree with Piper on this "hinge," and yet who would be prepared to cheerfully grant all the broader contextual issues that Wright has brought up here" (emphasis added).

Quote from Doug Wilson's first installment concerning N. T. Wright's response to John Piper in Justification: God's Plan and Paul's Vision.

Wilson's comment reminds me of one of my seminary professors who characterized some "Fundamentalists who were so narrow-minded that they could look through a keyhole with both eyes at the same time."

That sounds like something Ivan French might have said but I am not ready to place a bet on it....???

It was Paul Fink. I remember hearing it more than once from him. It was always funny, though.
