Isn't this Ironic?

In America the best selling Christian books seem to be full of fluff and self-help psycho babble. Almost without exception, whenever I hear Christians raving about some new book, it always ends up being full of aberant teachings or it's something written by Joel Osteen, Rick Warren, or the like...

Compare what we see going on in American Christian publishing to the fact that in China, a University in Peking is actually publishing Christian literature "as long as it reaches a certain level of intellectual and academic respectability."

They are publishing books by Ravi Zacharias and R.C. Sproul!

What? No books by Joel Osteen?!! No Purpose Driven Church in Chinese? Ahh! Those terrible Commies! It's almost as if they want their people to THINK or something!

Seriously though... Let's continue to pray and thank God for what He's doing in China! I believe this is going to result in something great!

Soli Deo Gloria!

Here's the press release from Ligonier Ministries.

sorry i'm trolling your blogs here tonight buddy...I'm supposed to be writing my thesis but I'm bored with it. I agree about the slop not fit for pigs thats offered in Christian bookstores. Conversely, have you read Dallas Willard's "The Divine COnspiracy"? It is probably the most intriguing spiritual treatise written in the last 20 years. Check it out.
