Church and Postmodern Culture kicks off an online conversation with Pete Rollins TODAY that will continue all month. I blogged about Pete Rollin’s book last year. Some of you have read it. Now its time to discuss it. Pete is a delightfully funny and thoughtful friend of mine and I am hoping that many of you get to know him over October as you kick his material around. I always end up talking Zizek and Marion with him when we meet which is cool. Pete says . . “The biggest compliment that someone can pay me over the book is not that they liked it but rather that they take it seriously enough to reflect and engage critically with it.” Start here.
