Burning Our Virtues

Burning Our Virtues–Robert A Pyne

I wanted to share one of the most influential chapel messages I heard at DTS by Robert A. Pyne. One of the great lessons I took from it (and there are several) is that a Christian scholar (or any Christian, for that matter) ought not arbitrarily condemn this book or that article without ever reading it for yourself.  Also, I believe he is also noting that our own virtues and values can become idolatrous when we are following Christ.  Our relationship to Christ is more than a list of rules to keep.
