Narrowing the list of books you’re allowed to read

Since Lewis viewed Praise as an indication of good mental health, it is not surprising that he defined good literary criticism as that which is fundamentally positive: “The good critics found something to praise in many imperfect works; the bad ones continually narrowed the list of books we might be allowed to read”

-Diana Gyler, The Company They Keep, p.49 (Quote from Lewis in Reflections

Sounds like much of the reformed blogosphere… cough cough John MacArthur cough cough Phil Johnson cough Challies, cough…

One thing I like about reading Robert Webber is that he doesn’t automaticaly assume someone with really different theology than him is worthless. He can still be eclectic and dig up good stuff from folks with all kinds of legitimate problems. Christians from different groups still being friends. How ’bout that?
