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.
