Discerning Reader is Done

I well remember the day I came across The Discerning Reader website - what a joy! Great books at great prices! I started buying from Rob and his crew immediately and except for one small oversight in shipping was always a happy customer.
Then things started to change.
There was an edginess in editorials and some sweeping generalizations that made me a little nervous. Nevertheless, I kept up with the DR and the associated websites.
Then came the ejection of all things "reformed" and the embrace and defence of the New Perspective on Justification.
Then came this sad statement on the website I read today:

We're done.

I like your Christ, but I do not like your Christians.
Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.
Mahatma Gandhi

Obviously, Rob was hurt by some Christians. I am praying he turns to Christ alone in that pain. And I would urge you to pray the same.


  1. I feel/felt the same way about Rob. Kept in contact with him for a while after he went all NPP on us. Kind of sad really.

  2. His Ghandi quote absolutely boggles my mind.
    I had emailed him once to get of the DR list, and you should have heard the garbage he emailed back to me! It was absolutely unchristian.

    I'm totally galled right now.

  3. The last time he quit for good he posted a long quote from Nietzsche about the death of God. That one freaked me out even more than Ghandi.

  4. Scary. I wonder how Rob's doing. Does anybody on the internet know more about this than what hits our eye on
