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?
