Well said George!
As a conversation starter, would you suggest one or two "theological" interpretative principles that might be useful  for ASA concerns?
Thank you O:-)

Anyone know where he is landing?  I'm glad at least that the WTS administration acknowledged that Enns' "teaching and writing fall within the purview of Evangelical thought."  For those truly interested in the debate provoked by I&I, the WTS official documents discuss the theological fault lines between the Systematic (opposing Enns) and Biblical Studies (supporting Enns) faculty in detail:    IMHO, the differing perspectives in these documents reflect a fault line within evangelicalism as a whole, one that is not easily closed.
