Discerning God's Work In The World: Tips From The Times For Preachers: A nifty sentence from the WSJ

A nifty sentence from the WSJIn a Wall Street Journal review of Jaroslav Pelikan's Whose Bible Is It? the reviewer, George Sim Johnston, says this about the "Gospel" of Thomas and all of its ilk:
"The fuzzy, nonbinding spirituality of these so-called gnostic gospels makes them popular among modern intellectuals."
Couldn't have said it better. (And it's a highly favorable review.)
Interesting that Pelikan, a lifelong Lutheran, became a member of the Eastern Orthodox Church not long before he died. His little book about Bach is one of my constant companions.
(Sorry, no exact date for the WSJ article but it's probably March or April, certainly 2007.)
