Carl Trueman on T. D. Jakes and "The Elephant Room"
Just listened to this podcast that came as a link on the RB Pastors discussion list. In it Carl Trueman addresses the recent controversy (see this post, among many) swirling in YRR circles regarding James MacDonald's invitation of one-ness Pentecostal T. D. Jakes to appear in his “Elephant Room” discussion group. Mark Dever was apparently also supposed to appear in the discussion but backed out when the controversy started to bubble. Trueman makes some typically sagacious comments. Sidenote: I find it interesting that the SBC’s LifeWay bookstores also sell T. D. Jakes’ books (look here), but this does not yet seem to have grabbed the attention of Calvinistic SBCers.
