Cloud says MacArthur sold Nouwen’s books

December 24, 2008

My focus was way off when I took a look at author David Cloud’s website the other day. I missed this gem:

MacArthur also sells dangerous books in his church bookstore. When Rick Miesel of the Biblical Discernment Ministries visited the bookstore in 1993, he found many dangerous titles. For sale was Henri Nouwen’s The Wounded Healer. Nouwen is a Roman Catholic mystic and a universalist who believes the gospel is not sufficient in this age, and he offers a mystical psychological/sociological gospel in its place. Also for sale was Chuck Colson’s book The Body, which calls upon evangelicals and Roman Catholics to join forces. Colson, whose wife is a Roman Catholic, said, “The body of Christ, in all its diversity, is created with Baptist feet, charismatic hands, and Catholic ears–all with their eyes on Jesus.”

Kudos to ODM detractor IT.
