Andrew Sandlin and Westminster Seminary’s Breezy Response

Andrew Sandlin writes a devastating response to WTS’s (West) response to John Frame’s extensive analysis of the theology espoused by the WTS faculty.  Sandlin’s soberly concludes:

Young scholars and students, let this be a lesson to you: if you ever have the fortune of having your book reviewed by a world-renowned scholar, and you don’t like what he says, don’t respond by saying, “He didn’t understand a thing I said, and he perverted everything I said into its very opposite.”

Not, at least, if you wish to be taken seriously.

But implicitly accusing reviewers of either massive ignorance ormalevolent intent seems to be quite acceptable at WSC.  That’s not the way actual scholars interact with one another in the real world.

I myself am no great scholar and never claimed to be.  But I have read great scholarship for many years.  I know scholarship when I see it.

And, boys, this ain’t scholarship.

    I wanted to leave a snarky comment on their rebuttal post saying “Now you know how the Federal Vision guys feel” when they didn’t recognize the views being attributed to them . But I restrained myself lest the R. Scott Clark fueled blogger horde hunt me down.
