New D.A. Carson books (and the musical Cats)
As a good follow up to the last post, Andy Naselli at Between Two Worlds announces D.A. Carson's two new forthcoming books on Tolerance and Evangelicalism. I have to confess that everytime someone asks, "What is an Evangelical?" I keep hearing a song in my head from the musical Cats, Jellicle Songs for Jellicle Cats, but with different lyrics: "Once were you blind, but now do you see? Do you own six copies of Today's NIV ... Because (Evan)gelicals can and (Evan)gelicals do, (Evan)gelicals can and (Evan)gelicals do ... Do you know how to get to the Billy Graham Centre? Do you think Rick Warren's your mentor ... cause (Evan)gelicals can and (Evan)gelicals do ... (Evan)gelical songs for (Evan)gelical Saps" etc. I don't know why, I wanted to be a lyricist when I was younger, maybe I am just disturbed.
