A few years ago I published an article entitled, "A Personal Relationship with Jesus?" in Perspectives at http://tinyurl.com/nn49fft Christianity Today picked it up and posted it on their Blog, "Out of Ur" at http://tinyurl.com/m2bnsu2 A similar article by me was more recently published in Christian Century at http://tinyurl.com/ms3smon It made a lot of waves, as you will be able to see from the comments. This article, significantly reworked, appears in my forthcoming book Not Sure: A Pastor's Journey From Faith to Doubt. Some people have asked for it, so I thought I'd post the links. Let me know what you think!
