More on Steve Chalke's heresy trial

The Church Times today has a story about the Evangelical Alliance debate I blogged about the other day.

The Fish website has interviews with Steve Chalke and Joel Edwards (head honcho of EA). This is very good. Chalke talks about mission, whereas Edwards gives such politically nuanced answers he could be the Archbishop of Canterbury!

You can find a short paper by Steve Chalke setting out his views here. This includes his comparision of the theology of penal substitution to 'child abuse'.

Meanwhile, back at the Church Times, Giles Fraser's column talks about Girard's work as a vital part of a Christian response to violence.

After all of this I think I want to read Chalke's book. Not a phrase that often crosses my lips!
