We read in the Proverbs, “iron sharpens iron”. This is the way I find it with friends. After a friend read “Another Gospel?”, he asked me a thought-provoking question, “Do you believe that our Mennonite teaching institutions are off the track?”
The thought had never occupied my mind and I had to give it some serious consideration before I could reply. My conclusion was that our basic theological teaching was not as much a problem as our failure to acknowledge and face major issues that leave us in a state of spiritual paralysis. “Elephants in the Room” is an attempt to address these unspoken matters.
