Subject: For Michael Horton

I want to begin by showing my utter gratitude to you, Ken, Rod and Kim. I have learned more from you men (including R.C. Sproul) than I have in my entire seminary education. No exaggeration. The substantive theological discussions on the White Horse Inn are truly remarkable. I know you're thinking this is basic Christianity, however, our Churches have all but lost them. You men have challenged me intellectually, theologically and spiritually. I can't thank God enough for people like you, bastions of truth, uncompromising in conviction. I simply want you to be encouraged; you are touching the lives of young and old, pastors and laypersons alike. KEEP GOING!

I also wanted to inform you that the WHI has inspired me to finish my Seminary education with writing a thesis on Brian Mclaren and specifically his perspective on Justification. I want to pursue a Ph.D and teach one day, hence my thesis. I also am captivated at the loss of substitutionary atonement in modern "evangelicalism." It's almost become a peripheral issue, one that's important but not absolutely necessary. Unbelievable!

Again, I want to thank you and encourage you to hold tenaciously to the truths of God, for without them we are miserable and lost.

Pressing on,
Mike
