I've been trying to follow the CN FB site because I'm hearing some of their stuff from people who have recently joined our tribe. I really don't like to spend time with negative folks, but I suspect I need to be at least conversant in the issues they are raising in case they come up.
FYI - I have no interest in debating the CN issues here. Moderator, if that happens, please stick a fork in this thread.
What I am looking for are automatic red flags in authors and Bible translations.
I gather they are not NRSV fans. I don't "push" it from the pulpit, but I preach from it, the NIV, the CEB, the HCSB and occasionally the NASB.
Are any of these besides NRSV and CEB considered to be "emergent" or "New Age" translations?
Obviously Len Sweet, Brennan Manning, anyone named Middendorf, Brian McLaren, Rob Bell, Doug Pagitt, Tony Jones, Tony Campolo are verboten. Is there anyone else that I should be watching out for?
I know the issues with The House Studio. Any other NPH- related things other than Lectio Divina?
I'm just trying to avoid starting conflagrations unnecessarily. I don't mind conflict that is productive, like iron sharpening iron. What I don't want is a trench war of attrition.
Thanks for your help.
