Pick your poison

The slow drip saga surrounding Driscoll continues. The recent twist in the story, exemplified by Piper’s entrance into the fray, is how the focus has apparently shifted from plagiarism to ghostwriting.

Piper, undoubtedly emboldened after reading my previous post, may himself encourage other pastors to at least make some kind of principled statement on pastoral integrity and/or scholarly virtue.

In the meantime I thought this post at Pajama Pages did a good job demonstrating the broader ramifications of ghostwriting in the pastorate.
