In the October, 2007 issue of CHRISTIANITY TODAY Stan Guthrie critiques the Red-Letter Christian movement. Tony Campolo has been the most visible proponet of RLC, and the the above link has Campolo’s response to Guthrie’s critique. I found the article to be interesting, but I was disappointed that Guthrie spent so much of his energy on the political/partisan implications of the RLC movement. It seems to me that there are much more interesting and important issues.
The article is pretty short, if you have a chance to read the article and Campolo’s response, please share your thoughts. What do you think about the Red-Letter Christian argument? Are you persuaded, what questions or disagreements do you have?
