Ben Cole, WadeB; Gushee, HBEE and the SBC

Wade Burleson has a blog up today about Reforming the Baptist Tradition
DAvid Gushee has a very good essay, a framework for Progressive Baptists in the January Issue of Baptists Today.

I have tried to conflate at some length what it all means in two thread at Bl.com
I invite you to comment here on this blog if you want to be part of the wide discussion I hope also to intersect with the blogs of www.faithinpubliclife.org ; Johnny Pierce, Melissa Rogers and John Killian.

The discussion so far at bl.com:

National Focus should drift fromHBee to Richard Land as the show comes to South Carolina, because to my knowledge Land has never spoken to the ethical questions raised by this episode of his conference caller Karl Rove shaping our shared History of the last 8 years.

Bottom line is Hbee is good for the national conversation, a conversation that would be elevated tremendously if so called "Progressive Baptists" were up to speed on Garry Wills, Marsh, Kimball and Balmer; and most recently DAvid Gushee in the January Baptists Today
