Ty Smack Down

1.  What is the relationship between practitioners and academia in the missional movement?  Outside of missional theology, our approach seems driven by pragmatism undergirded by pseudo-scholarship.  In other words, we’ve already come to our conclusion through experience and then we seek to back it up with biblical scholarship.  (Is that fair?  Is there traces of anti-intellectualism in this approach?)  In regards to APEST, there seems to be a disconnect between what commentaries/bible scholars/church historians have said in regards to Eph. 4 and what practitioners are saying.  How do we bridge this gap and have these two groups in closer dialogue?
